College Marina 
To Be Constructed 
On Sibley Lake 

Plans have been completed here 
for the construction of a marina 
an Sibley Lake to be used for in- 
structional and recreational pur- 

President Arnold R. Kilpatrick 
announced that the college has 
entered into a lease agreement 
with the city of Natchitoches for 
7.8 acres of property on Sibley 
Lake for the location of the ma- 

Scott said Northwestern will pay 
SI a year for the property for a 
10-year period. Also cooperating 
in the lease arrangement was 
Herbert S. Cobb, chairman of 
Waterworks District Number 

Dr. Robert Alost, head of the 
Northwestern Department of 
Health and Physical Education, 
said the marina will be con- 
structed between the Robeline 
Road and Highway One on the 
lake's east dam. 

Plans and specifications for the 
marina have been approved by 
the State Department of Public 
Works, the Health Department 
and the Waterworks District. 

The building, which will be 
fraime and sheet metal construc- 
tion, will be 50 feet by 38 feet. 
It will be used to house sailboats, 
canoes and other equipment to 
be used in the college's aquatic 

Alost said the marina will be 
used for methods classes in aqua- 
tics and boating, activity classes 
for all college students, recrea- 
tion and for the National Red 
Cross Aquatic School, which is 
held annually at Northwestern. 

Fifteen sailboats and 20 canoes 
will be housed in the marina, 
and classes will be conducted on 
the 2,500acre lake. 

Northwestern will become the 
first state college to offer a com- 
plete aquatic program, including 
water skiing, swimming, waetr 
safety, canoeing, sailing and 
other aquatic programs. 

Chaplin's Lake, which borders 
the Northwestern campus, is pres- 
ently being used for the college's 
aquatics classes. Alost said the 
lake will still be used for some 
classes but will become primar- 
ily a recreational facility when 
the Sibley Lake marina is com- 

Because of facilities such as 
Chaplin's Lake, Nesom Natator- 
ium and the new marina, North- 
western w^Ll conduct the only 
Red Cross Aquatic School in the 
Southest and Southwest Districts, 
which encompass 21 states.

Post Office Near Completion; 
Biology Building Set for '70 

by Diedre McDonald 

The new campus post office 
is scheduled to be ready for use 
by September 1. 

The 2,800 square foot structure 
located between the Student 
Union and the Arts and Sciences 
Building will offer all the ser- 
vices of the present post office, 
while doubling the number of 
boxes available to students and 
faculty to a total of 4,000. 

Clerk in Charge of Northwest- 
ern Station will be Mrs. O'Deal 
Pharris, who has been with the 
college since 1945. Mrs. Pharris 
urges students to pay their box 
rent before summer vacation and 
retain their present box numbers 
in the new building. She also en- 
courages students to notify the 
post office of their summer ad- 
dresses so their mail can be for- 
warded to their homes. 

Box rents will continue to be 
$1 for, the smallest boxes, and 
slightly more for the two larger 
ones. No more than two persons 
will be allowed to share a box. 

The round shape of the $37,000 
building will allow the boxes to 
be arranged around the sides of

Mail will be put up at 7:45 and 
8:45 a.m., and 1:45 p.m. It will 
leave the college at 8 a.m. and 
1 and 4 p.m. 

Biology Building 

The new N.S.C. Biological 
Sciences building is tentatively 
scheduled for completion in the 
fall of 1970, according to Dr. 
illiam J. Erwin, head of the bio- 
logy department. 

The three-story building will 
feature four general biology 
laboratories and one general 
botany laboratory. Three solaria 
will be included, one for each 
pair of biology labs and one for 
the botany lab. These green- 
house-like structures will aid and 
increase learning processes 
through their easy accessibility. 

Also featured will be a class- 
room auditorium with elevated 
seating of 126 persons. Two 
unique proejction systems will 
enable classes to watch films re- 
flected on translucent screenp 
quietly and without disruption 
of seating or equipment. 

Work has been completed lo- 
cally on a five-unit apartment 
building to be used for married 
student housing on the campus. 

Constructed at a cost of $48,- 
000, the building has five one- 
bedroom units. Each apartment 
has a kitchen, bedroom, bath and 
living and dining area. 

E. P. Dobson of Natchitoches 
was architect for the project, 
which includes a separate build- 
ing near the apartment complex 
to serve as a community laundry 

Mrs. Katherine Welch, North- 
western's building program co- 
ordinator and property manager, 
said the apartments have been 
occupied for the summer semes- 
ter, which began last week. 

Construction of the brick apart- 
ment complex is part of a long- 
range plan to eliminate the 
frame buildings now being used 
for married student housing and 
replace them with more modern 
and attractive housing units. 

Northwestern now has six 
modern, brick married housing 
units which include 32 apart- 
ments. There are 27 other apart- 
ments in the frame buildings 
which are being utilized for mar- 
ried student housing. 

The new unfurnished apart- 
ments are located between Col- 
lege Avenue and Sibley Drive 
near Caldwell Hall on the north 
side of the campus. 

Brick was used exclusively on 
the exterior of the new unit,

The apartment complex is part 
of a $3.2 million building pro- 
gram which began at the college 
during the Winter. 

Other projects in the building 
program are a $1.7 million bio- 
loggical sciences building; $1.2 
million women's physical educa- 
tion facility and $106,000 agri- 
cultural accessory building.

All systems are go after the week-long blackout that 
enveloped the west side of the campus June 12, according 
to President Arnold R. Kilpatrick. 

Eight buildings on the "oc- Kilpatrick explained that he 
cupied side" of the campus were requested money for an addi- 

deprived of electricity due to the 
majority power failure. Power 
was supplied to these buildings 
by a 7,500 KVA transformer lo- 
cated north of Rapides Hall. 

The relatively new General 
Electric transformer "just burn- 
ed out." The machine was four 
years oud. 

The affected side of the cam- 
pus is now being operated by a 
temporary 6,000 KVA transform- 
er that was shipped from Salt 
Lake City, Utah, by the Conti- 
nental Transformer Company of 
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. 

The failure, which resulted in 
all regularly scheduled classes 
being dismissed, lasted a week 
due to the great distance the 
heavy auxiliary machine had to 
be transported and a trucking 

The transformer now in opera- 
tion is a "used" one although 
Kilpatrick said it is in good shape 
and he expects no problems. He 
also stated that the worn out 
transformer was not running at 
its capacity and the smaller ma- 
chine is capable of handling the 
load. The transformer working 
now cost about $20,500. 

Electrical plant superinten- 
dent A. E. Brown said the trans- 
former which blew out "was ship- 
ped to Dallas for repairs and 
college officials expect it back 
in three to six weeks. Kilpatrick 
estimated the cost of repair and 
delivery at approximately $30,- 

Shu dtown by the power failure 
were the Arts and Science Build- 
ing, Sabine Hall, Rapides Hall, 
Caddo Hall, Bossier Hall, Iber- 
ville Dining Hall, Williamson 
Hall and the Student Union. 

Ezra Adams Gets 
Associate Prof 


Ezra Adams has been appointed 
associate professor of journalism 
at Northwestern, according to 
President Arnold R. Kilpatrick. 

Kilpatrick said Adam's appoint- 
ment in the Department of 
Speech and Journalism is effect- 
ive with the summer session. He 
is Current Sauce adviser. 

For the past year, Adams has 
been at Northwestern on a teach- 
ing assistanship in the college's 
doctoral program. 

Adams earned his bachelor's 
degree from Northeast Louisiana 
State College and was granted his 
master's degree from Louisiana 
State University. 

Before coming to Northwest- 
ern, he served as public relations 
representative for International 
Paper Company in Bastrop. 

Adams has also served as di- 
rector of publications at South- 
eastern Louisiana College and 
was a public information repre- 
sentative for the State Depart- 
ment of Agriculture. He has 
worked for the Baton Rouge 
Morning Advocate, the Monroe 
Morning World and the Frank- 
lin Sun in Winnsboro. 

The new Northwestern faculty 
member holds membership in 
Blue Key Honor Fraternity, the 
National Association for Educa- 
tion in Journalism, Sigma Delta 
Chi, National Council of College 
Publications Advisers and other 
professional organizations. 

tional transformer, in case of 
failure, from the State Board of 
Education last March. The re- 
quest was turned down. How- 
ever, he said that all expenses 
encountered with the failure will 
be paid from state funds and 
will nat tax NSC's budget. 

Future plans for Northwest- 
em's electrical system include 
still another transformer to be 
used as a backup device. With 
the return of the damaged unit 
and the purchase of a new trans- 
former, both the east and west 
side of the campus will have 
emergency capacities. 

Bids were taken on the fourth 
machine last week and it is ex- 
pected to be ready for use in 
three to six months. 

Kilpatrick also said that no 
apparent damage had been done 
to the computers in the Arts and 
Sciences Building or specimen 
in the Biology Building as a re- 
sult of the air conditioners be- 
ing shut off. 

Presents First 
Play June 30 

By Donna Searcy 

A complicated plot and a sur 
prise ending are two factors de- 
picted in the three-act drama, 
Dangerous Corner by J. B. Priest- 
ly, to be presented at Northwest- 
em's Little Theatre, June 30 
through July 2 at 8 o'clock. 

Truth and its impact upon a 
publishing empire is the central 
theme of the drama to be directed 
and staged by Dr. Edna West, 
head of the Speech and Journal- 
ism Department at NSC. 

Alice Ann Ccmners, a graduate 
student from Shreveport, has 
been cast in the leading role as 
Maud Mockridge, a novelist. Ken 
Kavalauski, a junior from Shreve- 
port, has a supporting role as 
Charles Stanton, a publisher. 

Other players include Lydia 
Ccnlay of Campti as 01 wen Peel; 
Brenda Leigh of White Castle as 
Freda Chatfield; Sharo n King, of 
Yazoo City, Miss., as Betty White- 
house, and Gordon Parker of 
Anchorage, Alaska, as Robert 

The action takes place in the 
living room of the Chatfield 
country home after dinner one 
summer evening. Dangerous Cor- 
ner is NSC Theatre's first pro- 
duction of the summer session.

Do You Think So? LITTL E MAN ON CAMPUS L ^ Takes CL Giant 

Step Toward Peace 

The staff of Current Sauce for 
the summer semester has decid- 
ed to continue the "Do You Think 
So" column that was begun in 
the Spring semester. This week's 
question is centered around the 
students who know the least 
about college, the freshman. The 
question is: "As a beginning 
freshman, what was your first 
impression of NSC?" 

"It was a feeling of fear and 
excitement," Brenda Mcllwain; 

"I think it's pretty good, es- 
pecially — well, uh, you know," 
Larry Thompson; Evans. 

"I think all the people are 
friendly," Kathy Mariem; Alex- 

"It is better than I expected," 
Lionel Whitmore; Moreauville. 

"It's friendly and it's got some 
good looking boys," Diane Ro- 
well; Ringgold. 

"I think it's a beautiful cam- 
pus and the people are friendly," 
Christi Pair, Magnolia, Ark. 

"I love it except for one thing. 
I wish they would fix the elect- 
ricity," Carol Almond; Haynes-

It's been a long "conflict." (Congress still fails to of- 
ficially recognize the Vietnam War as a war.) The brutal 
battle involving United States service men in Southeast 
Asia have been fought for approximately nine years. 

Nine years! Nine years of killing that have* resulted 
in more US soldiers being cut down in Vietnam than in 
World War I. 

Now President Nixon has commendably put more of 
the responsibility of keeping South Vietnam free on the 
hands of the Vietnamese while taking a true and significant 
step toward peace. The 25,000 US men that Nixon has 
ordered pulled out within the next month is a drop in the 
bucket compared to the half million in Vietnam, but it is 
a sincere start at cranking the Communists' motor toward 
a treaty. 

Talk indeed seems to be cheap in Paris where negoti- 
ators on both sides have exchanged insults for well over a 
year. Perhaps concrete evidence like Nixon's cutback, will 
show the Reds that the US has taken the initiative. It re- 
mains to be seen how the opposition will react to this rea- 
sonable beginning of peace. 

If genuine peace does not come to Vietnam, Nixon will 
still be stuck in the sticky web that those before him have 
spun. The US public seems to be rapidly becoming dis- 
satisfied with a "standoff" war while thousands of Ameri- 
cans lose their lives. The present administration will have to 
make a choice of stepping up the war and pursuing victory, 
keeping conditions as they are or a complete pullout. 

Americans in majority don't seem to want the first 
two and yet if a pullout is; executed, over 35,000 lives of 
Americans will have been needlessly sacrificed. 

The road to acceptable peace will still have to be de- 
toured to Paris, no matter how many miles it is out of the 
way to the destination.

Dr. Land's Collection To Be In 
LSU Museum of Natural Science 

More than 1,700 specimens of 
tropical birds collected by Dr. 
Hugh C. Land, former professor 
of biological sciences here, have 
been donated to the Louisiana 
State Museum of Natural Science. 

Internationally known in orn-

lected the birds during four ex- 
tended trips to Guatemala. Films 
which he completed in Guatema- 
la shortly before his death last 
December were recently shown 
on nation-wide television.

Six Northwestern Faculty 
and Staff Retire From Posts 

by David Miller 

The end of the year can mean 
many different things to many 
different people. To six North- 
western faculty and staff mem- 
bers it means happiness, in other 
words, retirement. 

Those leaving after this fiscal 
year include Archie Deason, 
Mrs. Vera Gabbert, Mrs. Myra 
Sue Hicks, Miss Mary McEniry, 
Miss Eve Mouton, and Dr. Ora 

Dr. Watson, who served as 
head of the Department of Soci- 
ology for the past year, has been 
a member of the Northwestern 
faculty since 1954. 

Miss Mouton has been teaching 
at NSC for more than 30 years 
and Miss McEniry has been in 
the Department of Languages 
since 1946. Deason hus been 
with the Northwestern Chemistry 
Department since 1947. 

Mrs. Gabbert served as house 
director at Bossier for the past 

14 years, and Mrs. Hicks has 
been on the NSC staff since 1956 
as house director at West Caddo

retiring members of Northwestern 
these questions: Mr. Deason — 
What are you doing now that 
you have nothing to do?

now be completed in one day, 
Monday, Jan. 26. Spring semester 
registration will be on Tuesday

Chemist Conducts National Teacher 
Research Here Exams to Be Held 

Dr. James L. Rhoades, associ- 
ate professor of biochemistry at 
NSC, is conducting research on 
fruits and vegetables which 
should be of great economic val- 
ue to growers, retailers and con- 

Rhoades' research project is 
pointed toward increasing the 
shelf life of produce by finding 
the reason fruits and vegetables 
turn brown when they are bruis- 
ed or cut open. 

For months, Rhoades and sever- 
al students in the School of 
Science and Technology have 
been studying the enzyme (poly- 
phenol oxidase) which is respon- 
sible for the formation of black- 
ish-brown pigments when fruits 
are bruised. 

Northwestern scientists have 
been successful in isolating and 
biochemically characterizing the 
enzymes of potatoes, bananas, 
apples, egg plant and avocados. 

Rhoades said that once the 
reactions of these enzymes are 
understood, then it may become 
possible to develop methods by 
which the browning reaction can 
be prevented, thus extending the 
shelf life of commercial fruits 
and vegetables. 

In future months, Rhoades

Registrar Advises 
for Pre-Registration 

Students currently enrolled will 
pre-register for the Fall semes- 
ter according to the following 
procedure : 

Registration packets and ad- 
visee lists will be given to de- 
partment heads and issued by 
them to faculty advisers on July 
21. If an advisee's packet is miss- 
ing, he should be sent immedi- 
ately to the Registrar's Office 
to have one made. 

Students will report to their 
advisers for schedule planning on 
July 21. (or on a date set by 
the department head). 

Each course being repeated is 
to be indicated as such on the 
class card when issued at the 
Coliseum. It is also to be indi- 
cated on the trial schedule card 
by placing a circled capital R 
after the course number. 

If all the information in the 
packet is correct, it is to be left 
with the adviser. If any informa- 
tion in the packet is incorrect, 
it should be noted on a pink 
change card. If a change of school 
is involved, the new school change 
form must be completed at the 
former dean's office. The stu- 
dent must take the change card 
and packet to the Registrar's Of- 
fice for correction. Corrected 
packets are to be picked up by 
the student the following day 
and returned to the adviser. 

New and transfer students will 
be advised on September 8-9 for 

the Fall semester. They should 
report first to the Counseling 
and Testing Center where they 
will be tested, given their pack- 
ets, and routed to their proper 
advisers. Those who apply after 
the registration period and do 
not fall in the above categories 
will report first to the Registrar's 
Office to obtain packets. Gradu- 
ate students will secure packets 
at the office of the Dean of the 
Graduate School. 

Students pre-registered for the 
Fall Semester will report to their 
advisers on Monday, September 
8. Advisers should make any 
changes necessary in the pro- 
posed schedules at this time, sign 
the trial schedule cards, and give 
the cards and packets to their 
advisees. Advisers are not to dis- 
tribute packets to their advisees 
in the Coliseum arena after final 
registration has begun. 

To complete registration, stu- 
dents will report, with their 
trial schedule cards and packets, 
to the Coliseum according to the

NSC Coed, Irish PenPal 
Meet After Five Years 

by David Miller 

You say you don't believe in 
miracles? You say God didn't 
make little green apples and there 
is no Santa Clause? And you say 
man might not make it to the 
year 2525? Well, regardless of 
all that, John Oliver Lawless did 
make it to America. 

If you have read this far you 
probably want to know who John 
Oliver Lawless is. John, a native 
of Dublin, Irland, and NSC stu- 
dent Joy Neck have been pen 
pals for the past five years. 

Three weeks ago John came 
to America for the first time. 
His primary purpose for coming 
was not to see his long time 
pen friend but to study market- 
ing techniques in California. 

John arrived in New York and 
then went on to New Jersey 
to see his sister who has been 
living there for six years. From 
there John went to the "beauti- 
ful capitol city", Washington, 
D. C, to go through the necessary 
customs to enable him to study 
in the U.S. for the next year. 

After clearing up things in 
Washington, John was ready to 
"see" the country on his way to 
California, where he would spend 
the next year. 

Well, John had heard all about 
Mansura, La., and knew that he 
could not go on to Calif, without 
visiting the "Cochon de Lait 
Capitol of the World" (Mansura). 
And it just so happens that Man- 
sura is the home of Miss Neck 
who has been writing John since

the 10th grade of high school. 
Joy is a senior here now. 

So John caught a Greyhound 
and rode for 32 hours until he 
arrived at the Neck home on 
Friday night. 

The Current Sauce asked John 
why he took a bus instead of a 
plane. "Well," John said, "you 
can't see much from 20 thousand 
feet up and I love your beauti- 
ful countryside so I decided that 
the bus was the only way." 

John spent one whole weekend 
with Joy and her family then re- 
turned with her to the NSC cam- 
pus Sunday afternoon. 

The 21-year-old Irishman was 
scheduled to leave for Calif. 10:00 
a.m. Monday morning. But then 
he was presented with the idea 
of attending a few classes just 
for the fun of it. He could not 
resist. He spent the day visiting 
various classes and commented 
afterwards that "It is quite dif- 
ferent than anything I've ever 
seen. Quite informal." 

John ended up, reluctantly we 
might add, leaving on the 6 p.m. 
bus to continue his journey. 

The Current Sauce asked John 
how he came about correspond- 
ing with Joy. He gave this an- 

"Well, I was reading the news- 
paper in Jan. 1965 and I noticed 
the section on pen friends and 
the name Louisiana sounded 
rather exciting and far away. I 
wrote a letter but it was not to 
Joy. Actually it seems that the 
girl I had written to passed on my 
address to Joy. It was about five 
weeks before I received an an- 
swer and frankly I had about giv- 
en up on one." 

The two wrote quite frequent- 
ly until Joy entered college. Then 
there seemed to be not enough 
time for either of them. At that 
time John was just finishing 
"secondary school" which is 
equivalent to high school. From 
there he went on to study Botany 
and Zoology at Albert College 
in Ireland for a year. 

The rest of his time up until 
now John spent traveling all over

John explained that the nurser- 
ies are big business in his coun-

be because it is customary there

Asked about his impressions

John only complained about 
one thing, the heat. "I can't be- 
lieve it's so hot," he said. "How 
do you people survive?"

most part quite pretty and friend- 

After John's departure Citr- 
rent Cauce asked Joy a few ques- 
tions about her unique exper- 

What were your thoughts when 
you learned that you would fin- 
naly meet John Lawless? 

"At first I was scared to meet 
him because he was a stranger 
even though we had been writ- 
ing for so long. And then I was 
really thrilled because I knew 
it would be a wonderful and un- 
forgetable experience." 

After you met him, what did 
you think? 

"After I met him I found him 
to be a very interesting person. 
He fit in perftctly. He put my 
whole family at east because he 
seemed not to be the least bit 
nervous. He also had a confident 
air about him that made him 
quite distinguished." 

How did you feel when John 

"I was really sad when he left. 
Now for the first time, he is a 
true friend, not just a pen friend. 
It seems like a dream. For five 
years I knew a name, now there 
is a fine personality to go with 
that name." 

What do you think impressed 
him the most? 

"I can't really say what John 
liked the most. I do know that 
he was impressed with the family 
life here. He mentioned that it 
was quite different from what he 
is accustomed to."

Pschology Dept. 
Gets Monkeys 
For Research 

By Diedre McDonald 

Among N.S.C.'s most recent 
and attractive female visitors are 
the little citizens of the Psycho- 
logy Department's new Primate 

Having just arrived in the 
United States from South Ameri- 
ca 16 weeks ago, these six visitors 
were loaned to N.S.C. through the 
Primate Center at Covington, La., 
which operates in conjunction 
with Tulane University. They ar- 
rived on campus Tuesday, and 
are now comfortably housed in 
their spacious cages in the base- 
ment of Caldwell Hall. 

Unusual accomodations? Not if 
the guests happen to be squirrel 
monkeys, and frightened, un- 
tamed ones at that. For, despite 
their soft brown fur and huge 
gentle eyes, their trainer would 
not dare to reach for them with- 
out the heavy, elbow-length 
leather gloves which protect him 
from their sharp little teeth and 

Taming them is the first task 
that faces James N. Field, who is 
studying their behavior for his 
master's thesis. He will attempt 
to observe and measure their 
problem solving ability and re- 
action to such stimuli as electric 
shock. Monkeys are especially 
good subjects for psychological 
study because, as Dr. C. B. 
Moody said, "The closer the ani- 
mal is to a human being, the 
more applicable the study of it 

The Primate Center at Coving- 
ton provided the monkeys and 
equipment free of charge as part 
of a national program to promote 
primate research. The newly 
established laboratory at N.S.C. 
has been said by the head of the 
department, Dr. Moody, to be the 
first to be set up in a Louisiana 
state college. 


Richard B. Smith of Bogue 
Chitto, Miss., will present a grad- 
uate piano recital in the North-

gram will include: Chromatic 
Fantasy and Fugue by J. S. Bach; 
"Waldsein" Sonata by Beethov- 
en; Phantasie in F minor by Cho-

Smith received the Bachelor of

1967 and for the past two years 
has served as a graduate assist-

Teacher's Aid Institute 
Claimed Successful Here 


'The best apvice I can give y<su ae-nr novm is forvou 


by Gary Estess 

The newly established Teach- 
er's Aid Institute at Northwestern 
has begun its first summer and 
is already being deemed atsuccess 
by instructors. 

In an effort to upgrade the ed- 
ucation program for Louisiana 
school children, the teacher aid 
provides relief for educators 
from duties not related to teach- 
ing. Thus the teacher is allowed 
more time to devote to the stu- 

The program consists of three 
courses designed to give each 
teacher aid in instruction in his 
or her field. Office administra- 
tion, typing, testing, general ed- 
ucation, the fundamentals of 
teaching and audio-visual teach- 
ing methods are covered in the 
course. Students also observe 
children in the classroom to gain 
further insight into the teaching 

Currently there are 51 students 
enrolled in the federally-financed 
program which covers a four 
parish area and offers college 
credit for the course. Although 
qualifications vary in each parish, 


Unique Student 
Enrolls at NSC 

Mrs. Hilaria Moore has entered college here for the 
summer session to learn new techniques, and methods in 
caring for pre-school children. 

What makes Mrs. Moore's enrollment at Northwestern 
unique is that she is the mother of 10, director of Red River 
Parish's only day-care center, and is 74-years-old! 
As director of the Red River 

Parish Kindergarten and Day- 
Care Center in the Springville 
Community near Coushatta, Mrs. 

Business Seminar 
Scheduled Here 

The School of Business at 
Northwestern will hold the sec- 
ond of two investment seminar 
sessions entitled "What Every 
Investor Should Know" on July 

Dr. David Townsend, dean of 
the NSC School of Business, said 
the session will be held at 7 p.m. 
The meeting will last two hours 
and may be attended by North- 
western students and faculty 
members and other interested 

Conducting the seminar will be 
Richard C. Black, account execu- 
tive for A. G. Edwards and Sons 
of Alexandria, security brokers 
and a member of the New York 
Stock Exchange. 

Black said the meeting, which 
will be held in Room 108 of the 
Business Administration Building, 
will consist of a lecture period, 
slide presentations and discuss- 
ion periods. 

Topics to be discussed during 
the seminar are "Stocks, Bonds, 
Mutual Funds," "Financial Term- 
inology," "Growth and Income 
Securities," and "Financial Plan- 
ning for Investments." 

The first meeting was held 
July 8. 

Moore wanted to return to school 
better run her center. 

At NSC, she is taking courses 
in operational proceedings for 
day-care centers as part of a 
three-week Home Economics 
workshop. She has just completed 
a three-week program in Kinder- 
garten teaching techniques which 
was instructed by Mrs. Margaret 
Cassin, State University of New 
York, and Mrs. Charles F. Thom- 
as, a member of the NSC Home 
Economics department. Both of 
her teachers described Mrs. 
Moore as "enthusiastic" and 
"excited to learn". 

Mrs. Moore began her day-care 
center some six years ago in her 
home with just one student. To- 
day, the center, licensed by the 
state Welfare department, is 
housed in a modern brick struc- 
ture and lists an enrollment of 
65 students with a staff of five 
teachers plus a bus driver. 

The idea for the center came 
one morning, Mrs. Moore said, 
when she saw a poorly dressed 
child of working parents walking 
to the store to buy cookies for 
breakfast. Red River parish child- 
ren no longer have to care for 
themselves while their parents 
work since the day-care center 
provides three meals a day, plus 
care from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 
Mrs. Moore's school was built 

by funds obtained from the Sev- 
enth Day Adventist Church con- 
vention and is constructed next 
to the Springville Seventh Day 
Adventist church. Money for the 
school and church was allocated 
by the church convention after 
Mrs. Moore addressed the group 
requesting funds for her project. 
She was the first woman in the 
church's history to ask the con- 
ference for funds. 

Mrs. Moore and her husband, 
the late Jim Lincoln Moore, had 
17 children; 10 of them living. 
The couple sent all 10 to college 
with eight of them graduating — 
five from Southern, one from 
Texas State University, and one 
from Grambling. 

Two daughters, Mrs. Mary 
Smith of Washington, D. C, and 
Mrs. M. B. Bass of Shreveport, 
both received Masters degrees 
from NSC, and a son, Emmett J. 
Moore, is currently working on 
his Masters at Northwestern.

summer season June 30-July 2 
at Northwestern's Little Theatre. 

Gordon Parker gave a superb 
performance as Robert Chatfield, 
head of the publishing firm. His 
demand for knowledge of the 
truth and its effect on members 
of the firm was the central theme 
of the play in three acts.

No Sat. Classes 
Among Changes 
In Fall Semester 

Beginning this fall, undergrad- 
uates will be allowed to carry 
full academic loads without at- 
tending Saturday classes. 

President Arnold R. Kilpatrick 
revealed this week a new class 
schedule whiqh will virtually 
eliminate dreaded Saturday 
classes for the great majority of 
Northwestern students. 

Classes will still be conducted 
on Saturdays during the fall, but 
they will be confined to graduate 
and senior level courses. 

Dr. Charles F. Thomas, vice- 
president of academic affairs, 
said a revisio n of class times on 
Tuesdays and Thursdays makes 
it possible for most students to 
eliminate Saturday clases. 

The new schedule calls for stu- 
dents to atend classes on Tues- 
days and Thursdays for one hour 
and 15 minutes each day. Pn the 
past, students have attended 
classes on Tuesday, Thursday and 
Saturday with each class meeting 
for 50 minutes. 

All classes on Tuesdays and 
Thursdays in the fall will meet 
for the one hour and 15-minute 
period, and there will be a 15- 
minute break between classes in- 
stead of the usual 10-minute lull. 

Classes on Tuesdays and 
Thursdays will be scheduled at 
8 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 12:30 
p.m., 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. 
MWF Stays Same 

Monday, Wednesday and Fri- 
day classes will remain unchang- 
ed this fall. Those classes are 
scheduled for each hour an the 
hour beginning at 8 a.m. and 
continuing through 4 p.m. There 
will be 10-minute breaks be- 
tween the 50-minute class meet- 

The new schedule won the u- 
manimous approval of the Deans 
Council at Northwestern and of 
the college's 28 academic depart- 
ment heads. 

In making the announcement, 
Kilpatrick said, "We feel the new 
class schedule at Northwestern 
will be beneficial to students 
for a number of reasons. In- 
creased tuition fees and other 
rising closts in education have 
made it necessary for many stu- 
dents to help pay their ow n way. 
This will allow some youngster 
to work on weekends in order to 
help finance their education." 

The Northwestern president 
also pointed out that the college 
has students who commute from 
throughout North-Central Louis- 
iana. He said the new schedule 
will eliminate some of their pro-

Dr. George T. Walker, presi- 
dent of Northeast Louisiana 
State College, will be featured 
speaker here during summer 
commencement exercises Aug. 1 
at 8 p.m. in Prather Coliseum. 

Three-hundred and florty-nine 
students are candidates for de- 
grees at the graduation cere- 
monies. Of the total, 199 are 
undergraduates and 150 are in 
the Graduate School. 

President Arnold R. Kilpat- 
rick said the selection of Dr. 
Walker as commencement speak- 
er was in keeping with the poli- 
cy of attempting to bring out- 
standing Northwestern graduates 
to the campus as graduation 

A 1935 graduate of Northwest- 
ern, Dr. Walker received his mas- 
ter's degree from Louisiana 
State University the following 
year. He was awarded his Ph.D. 
degree from LSU in 1948. 

Dr. Walker, a native of Jones- 
boro, became president of North- 
east in 1958. During his presi- 
dency, Northeast has tripled in 
i n enrollment and in the number 
of buildings on the campus. 

Before going to Northeast as 
president, Dr. Walker s>erve)d

physical facility. Several loca- 
tions are being considered for 
the construction of the center. 

Five committee members left 
Northwestern this week to tour 
the facilities of the Transylvania 
Music Camp in Brevard, N.C., and 
the Interlochan, Mich., National 
Music Camp. The group will be 
in North Carolina Wednesday and

in Michigan. 

Committee members making 
the trip along with Kyzar are 
Mrs. Edwin Blum, New Orleans, 
president of the Louisiana Coun- 
cil for Music and the Performing 
Arts; Joe Sheppard, Department 
of Music, Louisiana Tech; Mrs. 
Paul Meyers, editor of the Ten- 
sas Gazette in St. Joseph, and 
Elton Lampkin, supervisor of 
music for the State Department 
of Education. 

Kyzar said that in addition to 
the study trips, consultants from 
Performing Arts Centers through- 
out the nation will be brought to 
the Northwestern campus to dis- 
cuss plans for the Louisiana Cen- 
ter with members of the plann- 
ing committee. 


Ten cheerleaders from North- 
westenn will participate during 
August 24-29 in a workshop spon-

NSC's Future 2nd Lieutenants Return 
From Rigorous Training at Ft. Sill, Okla, 

By Gary Estess 

The thunder of marching feet 
and sharp commands piercing 
the tranquility of the Oklahoma 
plains have become familiar 
sounds to 32 ROTC cadets from 
weeks, along with 2700 other 
military students from the five 
state Fourth Army District, the 
future second lieutenants have 
attended ROTC Summer Camp 
held at Fort Sill, Okla. 

It is the first time summer 
camp has been offered as an ac- 
credited course worth 3 hours 
of college credit. However, it is 
hours ever earned by a student. 

The average cadet's work day 
lasts 14 to 16 hours; living in 
te,nts, with temperatures, rang- 
up to 110 degree. 

A grueling physical and men- 
tal ordeal, summer camp gives 
army instructors an opportunity 
to evaluate the leadership ability 
of each student. Cadets receive 
on-the-job training of the skills 
learned in the classroom. This 
kind of practical application in- 
cludes courses in tactics, map 
reading, communications, and 
weapons such as armor, artillery, 
and all types of small arms. Also 
cadets were required to run a 
proficiency course consisting of 
rough terrain and formidable 

These hearty young warriors 
that participated in summer camp 
will form the nucleus of leader- 
ship in the Northwestern ROTC 
Corps. For in their hands rest 
the reins of responsibility that 
is brought on by leadership.

area in which Dr. Bailey is re- 
cognized as a national authority. 

Her doctoral dissertation, pub-

Our planet was visited Sunday 
night by two strange creatures 
from another world. It is believed 
that the intruders came from the 
planet earth, although this has 
not been confirmed as of yet. 

An unidentified spacecraft was 
first noticed early Saturday night 
orbiting the moan at a relatively 
fast speed. The craft continued 
orbiting until 1:30 MCT (Moon 
Crater Time), at which time it 
left orbit and sped toward the 
moon's surface. 

It was first believed the craft 
would crash as a result of its 

high rate of speed. But the closer 
it came it began slowing down 
until finally the craft touched 
down at a speed estimated at 
3 mph. 

Officials reported that the 
craft rested for some six hours 
before any further movement 
could be noted. 

The craft was first noticed by 
a surface expedition that was 
above regular moon living condi- 
tions gathering moon dust for 
Chief Nasmar's private supply of 
the valuable particles. 

After six hours one creature 
appeared from within the craft 
and stepped down onto the moon.

Building Nears 
Finished Stage 

Work is nearing completion on 
the construction of a $106,000 
agriculture accessory building. 

Mrs. Katherine Welch, build- 
ing program coordinator at North- 
western, said construction work 
on the structure is in its final 
stages and it should be equipped 
and furnished in time for use at 
the beginning of the fall semester 
in September. 

Located east of the dairy barn 
on the Northwestern campus, the 
building is of metal, pre-fabricat- 
ed construction. There will be 
6,134 square feet of floor space 
in the facility. 

Officials in the Department of 
Agriculture at Northwestern said 
the building will contain a dairy 
processing laboratory, animal pro- 
ducts laboratory, agricultural 
engineering laboratory, and an 
arena for judging and showing 
livestock, a large classroom and 
office space. 

Facilities in the building will 
make it possible for Northwestern 
agriculture students to process 
all types of dairy products. There 
will also be facilities for the 
slaughter, processing and freezing 
of poultry, hogs and cattle. 

The agricultural accessory 
building is part of a $3.1 million 
building project which got under 
way on the Northwestern campus 
early this year.

Shortly another alien appeared. 
The two carried on what seemed 
to be rather scientific actions at 
times. At other times the crea- 
tures were quite primitive in 
their actions. They were seen at 
times running and jumping for 
mo reason at all. Once the aliens 
even stood in one spot and just 
jiggled their limbs. 

After gathering pieces of rock 
and moon dust th ecreatures got 
back into their craft. Officials 
stated that the aliens must have 
been in quite a hurry or that they 
are just simple-minded for they 
left equipment all over the 
mocin's surface. They even threw 
ou tpart of their clothing before 
the yleft. Our scientists say that 
that is a definite characteristic 
of the natives of earth . 

The odd looking craft blasted 
off the moon surface at 2:30 
MCT Monday. Officials did not 
disclose in which direction it was 

Who were these strange crea- 
tures? What did they want? Will 
they return? Who knows! 

Inner Surface Security said 
that if any further incidents 
occur the aliens will be ap- 
proached and asked to leave im- 
mediately. "If the aliens refuse, 
the penalty will be severe." 

For security purposes, for the 
next four moon periods only, all 
surface expeditions will be ac- 
companied by the Armed Moon 

This reporter had the oppor- 
tunity to get close enough to the 
invaders to catch part of a con- 
versation between the two aliens. 
They kept mentioning something 
about "green", "the man", and

Now Required

Donald N. MacKenzie, the 
Northwestern librarian, has an- 
nounced that all full-time stu- 
dents enrolled at NSC will be 
required to show their I.D. cards 
when checking out books in the 
college library. 

This applies to books circulated 
from the charging desk or the re- 
serve desk. However, the regular 
library card which is issued at 
the charging desk is still used 
in checking out materials. 

MacKenzie added, "It is hoped 
that at some future date a suit- 
able campus I.D. card will elim- 
inate the need for a separate 
library card.

^ther reason for the late-

rons were incomplete or 
arrival. "The applications 

should have been in on or before 
July 15, but many were accepted 
late," Dr. Martin said. 

"Lateness of the loans," he 
continued, "is not only a prob- 
lem at NSC, but at several other 
colleges throughout the state as 
well. A recent cut in expendi- 
tures is another reason for the 
tardiness of the loans." 

Last yearNSC did not receive 
sufficient funds for the financial 
aid program until Oct. 1. This 
year the loans are about ten 
days late, but should be com- 
pleted sometime this week. 

If any student wishes to apply 
for financial aid for the spring 
semester, his application should 
be in no later than Nov. 15. Dr. 
Martin emphasized that these 
applications should be complete 
and prompt.

Student Veterans 
Are Given Advice 

The Veterans Administration 
has announced a list of precau- 
tions to insure that veterans in 
college under the G.I. Bill re- 
ceive their checks promptly and 
with no problems. 

Veterans should turn in their 
Certificate of Eligibility to the 
Registrar as soon as they regis- 
ter and see that he returns it 
promptly to the VA. 

If the checks do not start with- 
in a few weeks after the student 
sends in his enrollment certifi- 
cate, he should contact the near- 
est VA office. 

All changes in address, college, 
or course of study should be re- 
ported to the Veterans Admin- 
istration. This also includes any 
changes in marital status or

ROTC At Northwestern Marks 19th Year 

day, Septei 

This year marks the 150th anni- 
versary of the Reserve Officer's 
Training Corps. This year also 
marks the 19th anniversary of 
the beginning of the ROTC pro- 
gram at Northwestern. 

The ROTC program has, for 
the past 150 years provided junior 
officers for the Regular Army 
and a pool of trained and ex- 

perienced reserve officers who 
act as modern day Minute Men. 

During the 19 years that the 
Corps of Cadets has been in 
existance here, a total of 4,891 
college men have received mili- 
tary training through the ROTC 
program. Five hundred, twenty- 
two officers have distinguished 
themselves while on active duty

throughout the world in more 
than 100 countries. And in the 
past 19 years 80 men have been 
acknowledged as Distinguished 
Military Graduates. 

Founded in 1819 on the cam- 
pus of what was to become Nor- 
wich University, the idea of an 
officer training program for 
young men soon spread to such 
schools as VMI, the University 
of Tennessee, and the Citidel. 

With the coming of the Civil 
War the need for more trained 
and qualified officers for the 
Regular Army and a need for of- 
ficers who would form a basis for 
a meaningful reserve force in 
time of peace was seen by Con- 

This challenge was met by the 
Morrill Act, officially known as 
the Land Grant Act of 1862. This 
act of Congress granted land to 
states for the development of 
agricultural and mechanical col- 
leges, a stipulation being that 
military training was to be offer- 
ed. The military training at such 
schools as LSU, Texas A&M, and 
Oklahoma State originated under 
this act. 

Today the ROTC program is of- 
fered to qualified young men in 
283 colleges and universities, 
eight of which are in the state 
of Louisiana. The program pro- 
duces approximately 80 per cent 
of all junior officers entering 
the Army each year. One half of 

all officers on duty with the US 
Army received their commissions 
through the ROTC program. 

ROTC commissions are held by 
39 general officers holding major 
staff assignments in the Penta- 
gon. The American military ad-

Pizza iDO 

So... what's different about PIZZA ? 

Our recipe, for one thing! Our pizza is famous for its 
distinctive flavor. Start with our flaky tender crust. We 
use a specially milled flour combination which is mixed 
and left to rise overnight. Plump California tomatoes are 
specially selected and blended with a zesty puree for the 
sauce. Then comes our most treasured ingredient of all 
. . . our own special blend of 26 of the world's finest spices 
and imported herbs. Then we crown all of this with a 
sunny golden blanket of aged mozzarella cheese and garn- 
ish with your choice of olives, mushrooms, pepperoni, 
hamburger, sausage, jalapenos, or anchovies. Oh, by the 
way, every pizza is made fresh on the spot. We never 
serve frozen or half-baked pizzas. Our pizza is the best 
. . . anywhere! 

That's what's different about pizza. We have pride in 
our product! It's worth a try, don't you think?

September 22, 1969 at 6 p.m. Burns 
called the meeting to order. Brown led 
the group in prayer, followed by the 
Pledge of Allegiance. Roll was called. 
Late was Arnona. The minutes were 
read and approved as corrected. 

Burns declined the request to make 
nominations for the State Fair Court. 
He stated that since the members of 
the SGA are represented elsewhere it 
would be better if they did not nomi- 
nate anyone for they represented the 
entire Student Body. 

Kenneth Bailey was sworn in by Dean 
Fulton to the office of Sophomore 
Men's Representative. 

Miles reported that his plans for 
the coming year as Student Services

committee had met Saturday and work- 
ed out a skeleton outline of committees 
for the coming year. The committees 
will be completed later in the semester

bers be approved as election commis- 
sioners to work at the polls. Seconded 
by D. Martin. Motion carried. 

Baker said that the constitution does 
no require that election workers be ap- 
proved by the SGA, and that only the 
five voting members of the Elections 
Board had to receive approval. 

D. Martin moved that Wanda Stoma, 
Debbie Singletary, Ronnie Brown, and

came before the executive committee 
and asked for help in obtaining an 
entertainer for a benefit show. The 
proceeds from the show will go to the 
Day Care Center for Retarded Child- 
ren for use in their building fund. It 
will be included with the spring en- 
tertainment but not part of the book- 
lets. Mrs. Scott asked for help from 
the SGA also in backing the project. 
Baker moved that a committee be ap- 
pointed to investigate the possibility of 
getting an entertainer. Seconded by D. 

Burns appointed a committee com- 
posed of D. Martin, Burgin, Miles, and 
Bella. The committee will be headed 
by D. Martin. Martin requested that 
the committee meet with the entertain- 
ment Committee Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Resolved: That The SGA Revive 
Defunct NSC Speaker Program 

By Gary Morgan 

For many years La. Tech has been considered North- 
western's arch-rival. But this rivalery is mainly confined 
to the playing field. So it would not seem too traitorous to 
point out a noteworthy activity going on in Ruston which 
is not connected with sports. 

Tech's SGA has initiated for the third year a program 
whose purpose is to sponsor lectures for the student body 
by well known figures in politics and other fields. 

For example, Dr. Benjamin Spock, the famous babv 
doctor who was just acquited of a charge of inciting young 
men to violate the draft laws, spoke on Monday. And Sen. 
Strom Thurmon of South Carolina is slated to lecture later 
in the quarter. 

The project is called Accent '70, and in the past such 
successful and interesting people as Senator Edmund Muskie, 
newscaster Harry Reasoner, Sen. George McGovern, author 
Mark Lane, and Sen. Barry Goldwater have been scheduled 
to speak. 

According to Bo Trussell, the advertising manager of 
Tech's campus newspaper, the students pay a $3 fee which 
covers these speakers as well as dances and other enter- 

Now, naturally, the question comes to mind as to why 
Northwestern doesn't have some similar activity. In general, 
new ideas for projects on campus are more easily accept- 
ed and acted upon if they are first conceived by a member 
of NSC's student governing body. This is just a matter of 

However, is it too degrading to occasionally consider 
the accomplishments of outside student service organiza- 

This seems especially true in this case. Lectures by 
renouned and stimulating personalities in the news could 
do much to alleviate the student apathy which supposedly 
permeates this campus. 

Freshman Candidates 
Show More Interest 

Spirit seems to be a big thing at college these days, 
and probably has been for many decades. Conversely, apa- 
thy is an undersirable trait for student bodies to possess. 

From the midst of a mass of apathetic students has 
emerged recently a crop of freshman students at NSC who 
appear to be somewhat more zealous than previous enter- 
ing classes — or at least in the realm of student government. 

Tuesday, freshman candidates for SGA offices gave 
their campaign speeches before a number of their class- 
mates, and the speeches they presented revealed a breed 
of "aware" students. 

Of, course this is in no way meant to degrade our 
present SGA officers and associates, but it is rewarding to 
see such a promising group of men and women coming up 
who will, in a few years, be leading Northwestern's Student 

Freshman elections were held yesterday, but the re- 
turns were not tabulated in time to make this edition, but 
it would no doubt be safe to assume that the percentage 
of voters from this, the class of '71, will exceed that of any 
class in recent years.

Although I'm not sure the American Cancer Society 
didn't have something to do with it against Johnny Smoke's 
wishes, the peace pipe will not be smoked any longer. Chief 
Caddo is again on the warpath! 

Out of the sister cities that house Stephen F. Austin and 
Northwestern, Chief Caddo was born. Nacogdoches, Tex. 
and Natchitoches are towns with Indian names and his- 
torical background; hence a wooden Indian was chosen to 
symbolize victory on the gridiron between the two rivals. 

This giant prize was not bought out of the nearest cigar 
store. In 1961 the schools agreed that the loser of that year's 
contest would cut a tree from its campus and the winner 
would have the responsibility of having a wooden Indian 
carved from the log. 

Well, as legend has it, NSC scalped the Lumberjacks 
35-19 and SFA officials delivered a 2000-pound black gum 


Northwestern contacted wood carver Harold Green of 
Logansport to fashion Chief Caddo from the massive log. 
Although Green was an expert wood carver, he had never 
3one any work larger than the Indian's head. However he 
finished after some 230 hours of labor, and there stood 
Chief Caddo. 

The Chief would make a pretty good fullback, weighing 
n at 400 pounds and standing seven feet, six inches tall. But 
maybe Caddo will be a flanker in about 40 years, for ac- 
cording to Green his weight will decrease by about 150 
sounds as he completely dries out. 

In 1962 Chief Caddo was delivered to State Fair Sta- 
lium (SFA was the State Fair opposition then instead of 
-.a. Tech) for pre-game ceremonies, and an honor guard 
matched over him until the game's end. The Chief then re- 
urned to his Happy Hunting Grounds because the Purple 
ind White again lanced SFA, 23-6. 

The next year the Chief's reign over NSC ended as 
he Lumberjacks claimed the Indian for the first time with 
» season opening 10-0 win. 

The old warrior returned for an extended stay at NSC 
:n 1964 when the Demons whipped the Tree Toppers 34-14 
»nd Stephen F. Austin was dropped from the schedule. 

But now Chief Caddo has thrown down the peace pipe, 
iroken the treaty and gone on the warpath again. 

May the best tribe . . . 'er team win! 

This Week's Forecast 

With last week's four out of five to work on (beginner's 
luck) here are the fearless forecasts for this go-around. NSC 
17, SFA 17 — Demons out gain Lumberjacks on the ground 
lo retain Chief Caddo. Northeast 21, Quantico Marines 3 — 
Marines not as tough on the football field as in other areas. 
La. Tech 31, East Carolina 17 — Tech, behind you know who, 
iinally starts the season with a win. McNeese 20, U. T. Mar- 
tin 17— Just a guess. USL 24, East Texas 14 — Bulldogs due 
to rebound after rough opener last week. Lamar Tech 17, 
Southeastern 15 — Could go either way.

Nyvall, Wallis, Pool Head Stats 

After two weeks of grid play 
resulting in a 1-1 record, the 
statistic sheet tells the story as 
to the strengths and weakness 
the NSC squad has shown. 

There have been some surpris- 
es. Junior halfback Tommy Wal- 
lis, usually a sub for starter Tony 
Papa, came off the bench last 
week against Tennessee Tech and 
ripped for 93 yards. With Papa 
injured and a doubtful perform- 
er this week, Wallis should see

mate Tom Hagin and reserve full 
back Mark Nyvall forms invalu-

Ail-American candidate Vic 
Nyvall leads all rushes with 201 
yards— including 132 last week 
which enabled the Demons to use 
ball control and punch across 
three scores in the second half 
for a come-from-behind 35-14 

As a unit, NSC has pounded 
out 33 first downs on the ground 
to their opponents 24 and lead in 
rushing yardage 633-545. How- 
ever the opposition i s averaging 
almost six yards a carry to NSC's 
five stripes a try. 

The Demons have been out 
flown threw the airways with the 
enemy completing only 40 per- 
cent of its passes but good for 
252 yards. NSC chunkers Mike 
Pool, John McClendon, and Lynn 
Hebert have thrown for a 33 per- 
cent completion average. Pool 
ha s completed all eight of the

Demons Open 2 Game Home Stand Saturday 

By Pesky Hill f^^t^tSS^SSf ! ng ^ as he corded 20 Latino and Larrv GauH.t 

After coming from behind last 
week for a 35-24 win, Northwest- 
ern returns to th« friendly con- 
fines of Demon Stadium Satur- 
day night for the home opener 
against the Stephen F. Austin 
State University Lumberjacks. 

NSC was brilliant in the second 
half against Tennessee Tech 
Saturday night as the Demons 
erased a ten point deficit at half- 
time to record their initial win 
of the season. One week earlier, 
Coach Glenn Gossett's brigade 
fell prey to the Florence State 
University Lions 27-3. 

The NSC-SFA contest is a tra- 
ditional rivalry which dates back 
to 1924. Chief Caddo, the seven-

Chief Caddo has made his home 
with NSC since 1964 when the 
Demons disposed of the Lumber- 
jacks 34-14. That was the last 
time the two clubs met. Since 
then the Chief has kept the 
teams apart due to scheduling 

Based in Nacogdoches, Tex., 
the 'Jacks of Coach Travis (Shor- 
ty) Hughes are expecting one of 
their better won-lost records this 
fall. In their opener two weeks 
ago, they crushed San Angelo 
State 36-7. Last Saturday, SFA 
had an open date — which gives 
them an extra week of prepara- 
tion for the Demons. 

Gossett was well pleased with 
the "effort and execution" from 
the Demons last week. Quarter- 
back Mike Pool guided NSC to 
three second half touchdowns 
and he personally had 158 yards 
total offense. 

However, there were many stars 
in the victory for the Purple and 
White. Halfback Vic (Cave Man) 
Nyvall, fullback Richard (Under) 
Ware, and halfback Tommy 
(Yogi) Wallis were the other 
backs that were instrumental in 
the win. 

Nyvall, a two-time all-GSC se- 
lection from Kilgore, Tex., is mak- 
ing a strong bid for all-American 
honors. Vic carried the pigskin 
31 times for 132 yards against 
Tenn. Tech and also received the 
offensive back award, which is 
one of several awards given each 
week by the Demon coaches. 

Ware was a key blocker dur- 

In Action 

Tony Papa (jr. halfback) — 
Doubtful as to availability for 
Stephen F. Austin. Suffered 
strained Achilles tendon in Ten- 
nessee Tech win last week. 

John Mcciendon (jr. quarter- 
back) — Definitely out of this 
week's actio n due to pulled mus- 
cels iin front of legs. Injury came 
against Florence. 

Mace Morris (sr. defensive) — 
Doubtful starter agjainst SFA's 
Lumberjacks. Badly bruised heel 
will limit playing time. 

Bob McAllen (soph, defensive 
tackle) — Irritated ankle again 
last week against Tennessee Tech 
rind is not at full speed although 
probably will see his share of 
playing time.

ing the fray as he recorded 20 
knockdowns from his fullback 
post. The West Monroe product 
also got praise from Pool for his 
blocking on the defensive ends 
of Tech. 

Wallis, who sees as much play- 
ing time as a starter, reeled off 
several nice runs and had 93 
yards rushing. A junior that 
prepped at Benton, Tommy came 
off the bench to replace the in- 
jured Tony Papa. 

Papa suffered a severe sprain 
to his ankle in the game Satur- 
day night and has been under- 
going treatment this week. How- 
ever, the little hard-running back 
from Shreveport Jesuit comment- 
ed just before press time, "I 
think I'll be alright for the game." 

Others on the offensive team 
that will see action against SFA 
are split ends Al Phillips and 
Wayne Haney, tackles Larry Ar- 
thur, Don Miser and Leonard 
Richardson, guards Leslie Rob- 
ertson and Bobby Koncak, centers 
Gary McCreary and Dennis Wil-

defense are linebackers Lester

Ronnie Bagley, and safeties Ken-

A capacity crowd of 10,500 is 
expected for the classic which 
kicks off at 7:30 p.m. But don't 
worry about saving Chief Caddo 
a seat; he always prefers to stand 
and watch from the end of the 
field. Who knows— maybe the 
Chief gets nervous?

Movie Reviews 

By Bessie Brock 

Beginning Sunday, Oct. 5 and 
running through Tuesday, Oct. 
7, a new movie called The Love 
God? will be showing at the Don 
Theatre. This movie stars Don 
Knotts as the supposed "love 
god", Anne Francis, Edmond O'- 
Brien, James Gregory, Maureen 
Arthur, Maggie Peterson, and B. 
S. Pully. 

The story begins when the 
publisher of a pornography maga- 
zine (Edmond O'Brien) is put 
out of business. Don Knotts, des- 
cribed as "a decent church-going 
young man who is the fourth 
generation of his family to pub- 
lish Peacock Magazine (a bird- 
watcher's monthly)," i s also put 
out of business because of lack 
of funds. 

O'Brien puts up the money, 
sends Knotts off to look at birds, 
and turns the birdwatching maga- 
zine into another "smut maga- 
zine." Knotts is arrested on his 
return and with the publicity 
on the case and a little help from 
Ann Francis, who is the new edi- 

tor he is turned into a sex symbol. 

Anne Francis falls for her own 
propaganda about Knotts being 
a sex symbol and falls in love 
with him. What happens after all 
this? You'll have to see the movie 
to find out. 

The Love God? is suggested for 
mature audiences and is being 
released through Universal Pic- 
tures. With Don Knotts there is 
no doubt about the movie being 
^ comedy.

Bar-B-Q by the lakeside this week- 
end. In full force they will attend 
the game and boost the Demons 
to a victory.

upcoming TKE social calendar. 
One of the outstanding events to 
come is the Palatin party.

al. The house, which is to be 

built on Chaplin's Lake, will cost 
an estimated $160,000 and con- 
struction will begin within the 
next 18 months.

the Pi Kapps and their dates at 
the football game cheering the

Northwestern Band Plays 'Football' 

Northwestern State College's 
Damon Marching Band will be- 
come the first college or univer- 
sity band in the nation to play 
the song "Football," written by 
Bernie Wayne, nationally-known 
composer, theatrical producer 
and director. 

Wayne, who wrote both the 
music and lyrics to the song just 
two weeks ago, will direct the 
Northwestern band when the tune 
is premiered during halftime at 
the Northwestern-Louisiana Tech 
football game at State Fair Sta- 
dium in Shreveport Oct. 18. 

J. Robert Smith, Northwestern 
director of bands, said rehearsals 
on the song have already begun. 
Wayne will fly into Natchitoches 
October 17 to work with the 160- 
member Demon Marching Band 
before the State Fair perfor- 

Wayne has written a long list of 
hit tunes, including "Blue Vel- 
vet," "Laughing on the Outside, 
Crying on the Inside," and in- 
strumentals "Venessa" and "Port 
Au Prince." 

Probably his most famous com- 
position is "There She Is, Miss 
America." Wayne wrote the song 
in 1955, the first year the Miss 
America Pagent was televised, 
and the tune has become a major 
part of Miss America pagents. 

This year marks the 100th an- 
niversary of college football in 
the United States, and Wayne 
said the centennial celebration 
inspired him to write the song 
"Football." He added, however, 
that the song "is for all football, 
from sandlot to professional." 

Arrangements have been made 
for Mayor Clyde Fant of Shreve- 
port to declare Oct. 18 "Bernie 

Wayne Day" in the city. Wayne 
will participate in activities lead- 
ing up to the State Fair Classic 
in both Natchitoches and Shreve- 

Wayne said several colleges 
and universities, including Notre 
Dame, Purdue and Iowa State, 
will be playing the song later 
in the season, but Northwestern 
will be allowed to preview the 
song at the State Fair. Several 
professional bands and high 
schools bands across the nation 
will also present the tune later 
in the year. 

Smith said the Northwestern 
band will feature a medley of 
Wayne's hits at the State Fair, 
and the new song will highlight 
the program. 

Wayne's contact with the North- 
western band came through Dixie 
Ware, a Monroe television and 
radio personality. Mrs.

(including NSC students) and 
that this parish is one of the 
very few that has adequate 
shelter space for its population. 

The plan designates the follow- 

ing shelters for NSC students: 
female students on campus — 
Sabine Hall; male students on 
campus — Rapides Hall; and mar 
ried students on or off campus — 
shelters designated for their area

stocked with CD emergency food, 
sanitation, medical and radiologi- 
cal supplies, and equipment and 
shelter monitors have been train- 
ed and assigned to them.

As I See It... 

By David Precht 

Yesterday morning on my way to the office, I happened 
to notice the United States Flag being hoisted to its posi- 
tion high above the old quadrangle between Caldwell Hall 
and Russell Library. 

I'm not the type of person who throws his shoulders 
back and recites the Pledge of Allegiance every time he sees 
Old Glory. But it does symbolize to me something of what 
our country represents. 

The point is, however, that had I not had a crick in 
my neck from studying too much, I probably wouldn't have 
noticed the flag up there. And it is not because I am not 
sky-conscious (which may be true), but rather I, like most 
students here spend very little time near the old "quad." 

It seems that a more conspicuous location for the flag 
pole, preferably in front of the Student Union, would re- 
store more meaning to the thought of having the Red, 
White, and Blue waving over our heads. 

Surely a more centralized display of the flag would 
not only make students more conscious of this American 
symbol, but would undoubtedly make a more favorable im- 
pression on our campus' visitors than the few scraggly 
bushes struggling to survive in front of the Student Union 

* * * * 


Swallowing my pride after last year's long running 
clash with the "Banana Bunch" over the Free Speech 
Alley — oops, the whatcha-callit, I now return with hopes 
high and guard down to that fledgling NSC tradition— the 
Student Soap Box Assembly. 

As I said last year, this is a POTENTIALLY good pro- 
gram, and the reason I said that is the Student Body just 
didn't participate in this particular activity enough to make 
it the success I and several others expected it to be. This 
lack of participation encompassed both the speaking in and 
the attendance of the assemblies. 

Perhaps I should have realized the program's lack 
of success was due more to the lack of interest of those 
persons for whom it was created than the few who actually 
did care enough about bettering Northwestern to air some 
of our problems, no matter how inane some of them may 
have been. 

As this new year began, I looked forward to new, 
bright faces and minds enrolling here, perhaps a few of 
which could help revive interest of a larger, more repre- 
sentative portion of the Student Body. After last week's 
response to the Assembly's premiere of the year, I felt 
that anticipation rapidly fade. 

Despite the SGA's efforts to improve the program, in- 
cluding the appointment of G. T. Spence as permanent 
moderator and the switching of time to Wednesday from 
12:30-2:30, the interest just doesn't seem to be there. 

Give yourselves a break, students, and attend the Assem- 

This week the campus reporter 
asked students to voice opinions 
on a suggested change in pre- 
registration. This would entail 
students obtaining class cards in 
rooms set aside in the respective 
schools. Students would then go 
to the coliseum at appointed tim- 
es to pay fees and have their 
pictures taken. Some of the opin- 
ions were as follows: 

"I like that. I think this would 
ease the confusion. When I came 
here everything was mixed up 
and I couldn't even get the classes 
I wanted. There has to be a better 
system than the one we have." 
Lovis Yeats, Monroe. 

"Anything is better than it is 
now. Pre-registration isn't worth 
a flip anyway." — Ronald Ban- 
ner, Simpson. 

"The majority of the students 
don't have their cards to fill out 
anyway. They don't get the class- 
es they're set up for in their pre- 
registration schedule." — Travis 
Bolten, Simpson. 

"No. this suggestion would be 
one big mass confusion." — Floyd 
Capell, Pecan Island. 

"It doesn't matter where you 
would have it. You can never get 
all the class cards you want. You- 
're going to have the same prob- 
lems." — Maurine Koelemay, New 

"Keep it in the Coliseum! That 
is the best way to meet all the 
new freshman girls." — Raymond 
Harper, Florine. 

"I think it's a great idea be- 
cause I don't want to go through 
those lines again. I don't think 
it should take a whole week to 
complete registration, though." 
— Larry Savage, Alexandria. 

"I think it will be a lot bet- 
ter. Last semester you stayed in 
a line for an hour and you still 
didn't get the classes you want- 
ed. Paying fees should be the 
same, though: Set aside two or 
three days to take care of them." 
— Patsy Durr, Marthaville. 

"I think that's a better system. 
Especially for freshman who have 
no idea of what is going on." — 
Paula Harper, Florine. 

"I think they ought to hang 
the editor of Current Sauce, who 
thought up the idea." — Alma 
Crowder, New Orleans.

Letters to 

Dear Editor, 

I am writing in search of a few 
answers to questions which have 
been bothering me since the foot- 
ball game last Saturday night. 

The first question is, do the 
fraternities have reserved sect- 
ions c/n the Prudhomme Hall side 
of the football stadium. If so, what 
constitutes this as that portion of 
the stadium designated as "gen- 
eral admission?" 

The second question is, is it le- 
gal for the students of Northwest- 
ern State to consume alcoholic 
beverages on campus at any time 
or is this only for special occa- 
sions such as football games? 

My third question is what 
authority does Campus Security 
have on campus? 

I guess by now you're wonder- 
ing why a senior student would 
ask such basic questions. Well, 
Saturday might, my fiance and 
myself (she was a guest on camp- 
us) entered the Prudhomme Hall 
side of Demon Stadium. When 
the contest began, I found myself 
surrounded by members of a Fra- 

This did not upset me or my 
fiance, for she looked upon the 
well-dressed young men as 
gentlemen. That is, until they be- 
gan to drink and spill large quan- 
tities of liquor on her and myself. 

I politely asked if they would 
refrain from their alcholic bev- 
erages and all I got was a few 

the Editor 

laughs. Well, I just shirked this 
off, and tried to enjoy the game. 
Within five minutes, more liquor 
was spilled on my date aind my- 
self. This time I said nothing, 
but waited for an apology, but 
none came. 

About two minutes passed and 
the fraternity men who were now 
feeling the effects of the alcohol 
began to use very offensive lan- 
guage. This began to irritate me, 
so I asked if they would kindly 
watch the profanity as my fiance 
was sitting in front of them. 

They did not make an effort to 
stifle the profanity, so I left in 
search of a Campus Security off- 
icer. I found two officers and ex- 
plained the situation to them, and 
this was their reply, "We can not 
do anything about that. We have 
have orders from Chief Lee." The 
orders were to the effect tnat 
they were not to bother anyone 
unless they became violent. 

There I was trying to get a 
little protection and was refused 
by the C.S. My fiance soaked with 
Seagram's VO and Smirnoff 
Vodka, and insulted by our fine 
chapter of this fraternity. 

I feel that my fiance and my- 
self deserve an apology from this 
fraternity for the very immature 
and inconsiderate behavior of its 
members. I hope you, too, will 
share my feelings after having 
a guest to this campus insulted 
in such a manner.

Even the most casual Northwestern football fan knew 
before the season what the biggest hang-up was going to 
be in search of another winning season. The papers were full 
of the fact that steady Don Guidry had graduated, leaving 
the Demon quarterback situation in, at best, unproven hands. 

And when three NSC signal callers alternated but put 
only three points on the scoreboard in the opening loss to 
Florence State, the "pattern" for the season seemed to be 
shoping up. 

But few realized that starter Mike Pool, although not 
brilliant, hit 5-11 passes. 

Then came Tennessee Tech and a 100 yard rushing 
performance by the 5-8, 165 lad from Bossier-Airline. Pool 
on that winning night threw seven times, completing three, 
with one going for a 32-yard score to Steve Gaspard. And 
it was Pool, effectively calling a ball-control game, that 
engineered five TD drives. 

Mike was not as accurate through the airways in his 
first home outing but he still managed to complete eight 
for 181 yards against Stephen F. Austin, 85 stripes coming 
on a record setting TD toss to Al Phillips. 

Last week Pool had his finest game as a Demon, hitting 
11-18 for 181 yards and galloping for 56. However, some- 
thing even better than those statistics, was the fact that Mike 
showed that he is rapidly rising to the plateau of maturity 
and leadership that all good field generals must have. 

Offensive back coach Johnny Emmons said of the junior 
QB, "Mike has come a long way. He was a question mark 
at the beginning of the season but he has proven what he 
can do. He should get even better because of his desire to 
win and excell." 

This Week's Forecast 

Well ho, ho, ho! Christmas cams early for me last week 
with a gift of five out of six (Tulane was my downfall). The 
season record now stands at 12 right, five wrong, for a 
.705 percentage. 

Chattanooga 24, Northeast 20 — The Indians might 
make it close at home but Joe (The Jet) Profit can't out- 
gain a whole team. Texas Arlington 35, McNeese 13 — Nation- 
ally ranked Arlington should humble the Cowboys for their 
third loss — all at home. Trinity 21, Southeastern 14 — Who 
knows? La. Tech 28, USL 10— It's Bulldog vs. Bulldog with 
the one from Lafayette biting only the dust. LSU 35, Miami 
10 — The Hurricanes hold a jinx over the Tigers but it will 
take more than witchcraft this year. Florida 42, Tulane 3 — 
Caliber of Green Wave's schedule offers them no rest. Cleve- 
land Browns 31, N.O. Saints 21, — Saints again fade in the 
fourth quarter. (NSC is not scheduled.) 

Just for the record I'll go with the Baltimore Orioles 
over the Amazin' Mets from New York in six games.

Four Set, Four Tied 

Marks Fall After 4 Tilts 

Eight NSC records have been 
equalled or surpassed by the De- 
mon gridders in the four-game- 
old 1969 season. Four new stand- 
ards have been set while in four 
other departments marks were 

Versatile Vic Nyvall leads the 
early assualt on the books with 
two individual records set and 
three matched. 

Nyvall set a single game kick- 
off return yardage mark with 136 
yards against Stephen F. Austin, 
breaking the old record of 100 
yards by Kenny Thompson against 
Southwestern in 1961. Also 
against SFA, Nyvall equalled for- 
mer Northwestern All-American 
and now New Orleans Saint Al 

Dodd's mark for most kickoffs 
returned, three. 

Vic put his name in the record 
books, three more times with 31 
rushes against Tennessee Tech 
and three touchdowns for 18 
points against SFA. The indivi- 
dual rushes record breaks Rich- 
ard Ware's standard of 22 against 
USL last year. Ware and Al Phil- 
lips also have three TD's and 18 
points in one game. 

In the team category, Mike 
Pool's 85-yard scoring toss to 
Phillips is the longest pass play 
and TD catch in NSC history. 
The Demon defensive secondary 
tied an entry into the books last 
week against Northeast when it 
held the Indians to 24 yards 

through the air. Northeast was 
also the recipient of only 24 yards 
passing in 1966.

Our pill. 

Does it really work? 

If you've ever resorted to NoDoz* at 4 a . m . 
the night before an exam, you've probably 
been disappointed. 

NoDoz, after all, is no substitute for 
sleep. Neither is anything else we can 
think of. 

What NoDoz is is a very strong stim- 
ulant. In fact, NoDoz has the strongest 
stimulant you can buy without a prescri p- 


What's so strong about that? 

If we may cite The Pharmacological 
Basis of Therapeutics: Caffeine is a 
powerful central nervous stimulant. Caf- 
feine excites all portions of the central 
nervous system. Caffeine stimulates all 
portions of the cortex, but its main action 
is on the psychic and sensory functions. 
It produces a more rapid and clearer flow 
of thought and allays drowsiness and 
fatigue. After taking caffeine, one is ca- 
pable of more sustained intellectual ef- 
fort and a more perfect association of 
ideas. There is also a keener apprecia- 
tion of sensory stimuli. 

Very interesting. But why take 

NoDoz when you can get caffeine in a 
cup of coffee? 

Very simple. You take NoDoz all at 
once i nstead of si ppi ng coffee f or 1 m i n- 
utes. And if you take 'wo NoDoz tablets, 
the recommended dosage, you get twice 
the caffeine in a cup of coffee. 

Two tablets— isn't that likely to be 
habit forming? Definitely not. NoDoz is 
completely non-habit forming. 

Which means it's safe to take 
whether you're cramming at night. Or 
about to walk into an 8 o'clock class. Or 
driving somewhere (even though you're 
rested) and the monotony of the road 
makes you drowsy. 

One last thing you should know 
about NoDoz. It now comes in two forms. 
Those familiar white pills you take with 
water. And a chewable tablet called 
NoDoz Action Aids*. It tastes like a choc- 
olate mint, but it does everything regular 
NoDoz does. 

And if you've managed 
to stay awake this 
long, you know 
that's quite a lot.

CLE AN -UP A few of the actives and pledges of Sigma Tau Gam- 
ma pick up bottles, cans, and glass from the Rapides Parking Lot. 
This clean-up campaign is one of Sigma Tau's new projects on the 
Northwestern campus. 

Sig Tau Hosts Parking Lot Clean-Up 

"What do fraternities do be- 
sides get drunk?" Have you per- 
haps heard this comment lately? 
Well, fraturnities do in fact pre- 
form services even if the general 
public does not hear of these 

As an example, Sigma Tau 
Gamma has undertaken the pro- 
ject of keeping beer bottles and 
cans picked up from the Rapides 
Parking Lot. 

Mike Heibel, president of Sig- 
ma Tau, talked to Leonard 
Nichols, dean of men, earlier 
this year about preforming more 
services for the college. Mike 
told Dean Nichols to let Sigma

that he thought of and Sigma

Alpha Beta Alpha, the library

held its first meeting on Monday, 
Sept. 29, at 6 p.m. in Room 300 
of the library. The theme of the 
program was "Book Power" which 
is also the theme for National

Officers for 1969-70 were in-

Mike about the large number of

danger of broken bottles cutting 
tires — that was not to mention 
how bad it looked.

Movie Reviews 

The Undefeated 

Showing now at the Don 
Theatre in Natchitoches, directly 
from its premier in New Orleans, 
is The Undefeated, a truly great 
motion picture which was film- 
ed in Louisiana. The Undefeated 
will be showing through Tues- 
day, Oct. 14, at the Don. 

The leading rolls in the movie 
are held by John Wayne and 
Rock Hudson. The Undefeated 
will bring both actors together 
for the first time on one screen. 

The Undefeated is the story 
of the aftermath of the Civil War 
and how a group of Confederates 
and a group of Yankees unite 
after many trials together under 
one common bond — the Ameri- 
can flag. 

How To Commit Marriage 

From Sunday, Oct. 12, through 
Tuesday, Oct. 14, at the Cane 
Theatre, How To Commit Marri- 
age will be showing. This motion

divorce when their daughter 
comes home with her husband-to- 
be so they put on a big front of 

Jackie Gleason, the groom's 
father who is a pop music pro- 
moter, haults the wedding with 
the news of the divorce. The 
couple postpones the wedding and

Each year about this time, NSC 
Demonland is in high spirits as 
what is known to NSC students 
as "Wreck Tech Week" returns 
with its many activities to the 
Northwestern campus. 

One of the oldest rivalries in 
the state, the competition be- 
tween NSC and Louisiana Tech 
started in 1907 and will celebrate 
it's 54th anniversary this year. 
"Wreck Tech Week" has now be- 
come a traditional part of the 
Northwestern curriculum sym- 
bolizing the rivalry with Loui- 
siana Tech as NSC's chief com- 

Planning for Tech week starts 
many weeks in advance of the 
scheduled event. The first aware- 
ness that Tech week is at hand 
is the choosing of the State Fair 
Queen and her court by the stu- 
dents. The queen and her court 
are presented in full array each 
year at the game in Shreveport. 

Tech week kicks off with the 
distribution of many cards that 
read "WRECK TECH" in bold 
purple and white print. To sup- 
plement the cards many buttons 
also reading "Wreck Tech" are 
sold and worn on campus. 

Stores in Natchitoches are 
quickly diminished each year of 
their supply of purple and white 
crepe paper streamers and white 
shoe polish which is used to 
decorate cars for the many parad- 
es in connection with the weekend 

Activities leading to the game 
start when the Bulldog which 
symbolizes Tech, is put on trial 
in Demon Stadium, found guilty 
of a long list of misdemeanors, 
and then hung on one of the NSC 
goalposts. The dog is then placed 
in a coffin and displayed in the 
student union. 

After he lies in wake for a day 
or two he is taken for a ride 
around campus and town in a 

parade which is followed by a 
huge pep rally and bonfire 
where the Bulldog is burned in 
effigy. As the bulldog burns, 
shouts of "Wreck Tech" and "Go 
to hell, Bulldogs" can be heard 

•jre 3U} jnoqSnojqj 8ui8uu 
ing throughout the air. 

On Friday a constant stream of 
cars head for Shreveport deco- 
rated in purple and white carry- 
ing many spirited Demon sup- 
porters. As Friday comes to a 
close, the campus looks desolate 
and quiet with nothing but the 
wind stirring. 

Saturday morning everyone is 
up early as activities begin again 
in Shreveport with a pep rally 
and parade that morning. After 
the pep rally is over, things calm 
down somewhat until that night 
when the highlight of the week 
of activities finally arrives. There 
in State Fair Stadium the game 
is played before stands filled 
with roaring fans. 

Since the rivalry between Tech 
and NSC K ~gan in 1907, Louisiana 
Tech has captured the most gam- 
es, winning 34 and losing 15. Four 
games have ended in ties. All 
four of these games had a score 
of 0-0. 

Even though Tech has won 
the most games, NSC and Tech 
have been considered evenly 
matched since 1958. Since that 
time the number of games have 
been evenly divided with Tech 
winning five and • the Demons 
also capturing five. The total 
scores for both teams since 1958 
show the Bulldogs edging NSC 
with a total of 181 points for 
the ten games played to NSC's 
178 points. 

More statistics show that Tech 
has the longest winning streak 
in the series with a total of nine 
games from 1945-1952. NSC's 
longest winning streak occurred

Kilpatrick Discusses 
Financial Situation 

President Kilpatrick addressed 
the initial fall meeting of the Stu- 
dent Personnel Association. The 
dutch-treat luncheon was held at 
noon, Wednesday, Oct. 8. 

Discussing the overall finan- 
cial situation of NSC, Kilpatrick 
stated that we were basically 
operating on a budget for 1966. 
This is despite a one-third in- 
crease in enrollment and infla-

A Winning Solution 

by Lynn Rollins 

We're going to win, 
I'll tell you why — 
When NSC and Tech meet, 
The Bulldog will die. 

The 'Dog will growl, 

But go down from the fight. 

For everyone knows, 

His bark is worse than his bite. 

Terry will turn and go to pass,

the federal government. The col- 
lege pays off certain rates per 
building after they are completed. 
Under the old room fees that 
the students paid these rates 
could not be met. Even with the 
increase in room fees though, 
NSC has some of the lowest fees 
in the state. 

Money for the day to day opera- 
tion of the school comes through 
the state. This is a primary cause 
of low supplies, the shortage of 
new books in the library, and 
the reduction of classes offered. 
Kilpatrick said he is constantly 
beating the drum when he meets 
with the Board of Education or 
the Legislature, but the real prcs 
sure to relieve the situation must 
come from the public. 

The Student Personnel Associ- 
ation is composed of full time 
graduates majoring in student 
personnel services. 

Graduating 15-20 people a 
year, the association is the only 
one of its kind in the state. 

In the two-year program stu- 
dents are prepared for work at 
the college level in deans offices, 
registrars offices, financial aid 
offices, counseling and testing 
centers, and placement offices. 

The association consists of 14 
regular members and 20 hono- 
rary members. Honorary members 
are selected through vote by the 
regular members from the facul- 
ty, student personnel supervis- 
ors, and college administration 

Elected officers for this se- 
mester are Frederick Bosarge, 
Alexandria, president; Agatha 
Newitt, New Orleans, vice-presi- 
dent; Dianna Braden, Pineville, 
secretary- treasurer. Executive 
council members are Roy Brown,

and Carl Leuth, Buras. Dean 
Dudley Fulton is the advisor.

NSC and Tech- 

(Continued from page 1) 
from 1938 to 1940 with a three- 
game win. The Demons have been 
scoreless in 14 games and the 
Bulldogs have been scoreless in 

The worst score that the Bull- 
dogs of Tech have compiled a- 
gainst the NSC Demons was in 
1911 when Tech toppled NSC 
with a score of 39-0. NSC's best 
win over Tech came in 1932 
when the Demons overran the 
Bulldogs by a score of 33-0. 

Each year the rivalry between 
Tech and NSC seems to become 
a bigger thing. When the series 
started in 1907, only the burning 
of the bulldog in effigy and the 
pep rally associated with it were 
part of the pre-game activities. 
As years have gone by more and 

more activities have been added 
and more are being added each 
year to help boost Demon spirit 
and send the team on to a win. 

Another change that has been 
made in the series is the change 
in the place the game is held. 
Before it came to be an annual 
event at the State Fair in Shreve- 
port, the game was played locally 
alternating between NSC and 
Tech. In 1937 the game was play- 
ed at the State Fair and has 
been played there every since. 

Yes, since 1907 pre-game ac- 
tivities leading to "Tech Week" 
have changed a great deal and so 
has the NSC Demons. As time 
flies on, more new activities are 
likely to be added to the leng- 
thening list in an effort to boost 
the team spirit and send them 
to win with all of NSC backing

Moving Violations 
Bonds Increased 

By Lenette Thornsberry 

Traffic fines for moving viola- 
tions have been increased as of 
July this year. 

In addition, any tickets which 
are received on campus for a 
moving violation must be paid 
for at the Natchitoches City Traf- 
fic Court. It was also noted that 
whenever an accident is involv- 
ed, the bond will not be less than 

The bond figures range from 
$15.50 for going the wrong way, 
obstructing traffic, and digging 
out, to $185.50 for the second 
offense in driving while intoxicat- 

Some violations such as im- 
proper turns, disobeying traffic 
signals and stop signs have seen 
the most notable increases in 
bond figures with a step of $15. 

According to Campus Security 
Chief James K. Lee, the bond 
increases were necessitated ac- 
cording to the Uniform Traffic 
Code with which NSC is in com- 
pliance. Also, a "no-fix" ticket 
has been incorporated so that 
"politics will be unable to in- 
fluence traffic violation con- 
trol," according to Lee.

Do You Think So? 

By Niva Chavez 

This week the campus reporter 
asked students to rate NSC as 
a liberal or conservative college 
as compared to other colleges in 
the nation. Some of the opinions 
were as follows: 

"I don't know that much about 
it, really. Naturally, I think NSC 
is the best college in all phases. 
As time goes on you should defi- 
nitely have changes. You have to 
grow. I think it's growing pretty 
fast."— Nadine Ellis, Hornbeck, 

"I don't know exactly. As far 
as teacher-education goes it's the 
best in the state. All the schools 
offered are good. They rank with 
the best in the state as far as 
I'm concerned. Student partici- 
pation here is good, but it could 
be better. There are a number 
who will work, but in a school 
this size you need more." — Loree 
Holladay, Oakdale, La. 

"Northwestern is ultra-tonser- 
tative. The apathy and conserva- 
tism is bad. The people here are 
too set in their ways to change. 
They are here to get their educa- 
tion and GO. As far as student 
government is concerned, the stu- 
dents leave it up to a few people. 
Elections were held too early. 
I don't imagine too many students 
voted. It's like a big high school, 
with all the signs and 'vote for 
me' gimicks. It seems to me stu- 
dents aren't too active. Compar- 
ed to other schools NSC is about 
10 years behind. It's back in the 
'racoon coat and flag waving' 
days. If the people dig it, it's 
up to them." — Bill Sandel, Dal- 
las, Texas. 

"I think NSC is just right. It's 
in between. It should continue 
growing at this same pace. I 
think we need more student par- 
ticipation because if more people 
get interested in it, it would be- 
come an even better school." — 
Carol Almand, Haynesville, La. 

"I don't think that NSC is grow- 
ing as fast as it should. There 
are more schools in the state 
competing with Northwestern. I 
think the students are very active 
in student government. I don't 
see where they could make any 
changes. I am satisfied with the 
student government as it is. I'd 
say NSC is a more conservative 
college." — Travis Kieffer, Mont- 
gomery, La. 

. "I don't know that much about 
it. I think a lot of the students 
participate in student govern- 
ment. This is the only college 
I've been to. I think it's progress- 
ing about right." — David Britt, 
Saline, La. 

"Northwestern is supercon- 
servative. I don't know whether 
the student body as a whole is 
uninformed or just apathetic, 
but either way, it's frightening." 
— Molly Chancey, DeQuincy, La. 

"I guess I'd consider it to be 
a more liberal college. The kids 
have more freedoms as in dress 
and social life. I'm not really too 
familiar with student participa- 
tion in government, because I 
live off campus. I think NSC is 
progressing very rapidly." — Ron- 
ald Eadgley, Shreveport, La. 

"It used to be conservative, 
but it's becoming more liberal. 
In some aspects, it could become 
even more liberal. The SGA 
could advertise more on what it 
is and what it is doing and try 
to get more students involved." 
— Prissy Frost, Bossier City, La. 

AWS To Sponsor 
Mom & Dad's Day 

The A.W.S. along with several 
other campus organizations will 
help sponsor Mom and Dad's Day 
on Oct. 25, 1969. 

Rebecca Sue Smith, chairman 
for the A.W.S. program, is re- 
sponsible for designing various 
types of name taggs for the par- 
ents of women students living on 
campus. The design of the tags 
will be based on the theme of 
"Remember When?" 

The women's dormitories will 
recognize the 25th, 50th, and 
75th Mom and Dad by giving 
them a special name tag.

"All right, kid. Is that thing registered?' 

Ticketing Problem Increases 

Over the past few weeks the awarding of parking 
tickets by our Campus Security force has reached what 
some might term "epidemic" proportions. This has in- 
cluded ticketing of cars parked at the Coliseum, some- 
thing which has enraged a number of students here. 

Chief Lee of the Campus Security has explained this 
practice, saying it is perfectly legal, and it is another 
move to decrease the flow of traffic on campus. 

If the traffic problem here is really so bad as to 
warrent such extensive measures, then perhaps it would 
be more advisable to seek some other solution, for this 
method of curtailing traffic is ineffective at best, and 
unnecessary at worst.

As I See It... 

By David Precht 
A Little Spirit, Now 

One of the most hackneyed topics discussed on this 
campus is school spirit. In fact, I'm getting so tired of hear- 
ing about it, I'm hesitant to editorialize on this subject. 
Nevertheless, there are a few things I feel I must say before 
we all embark on that spirit-filled (the other kind which 
was discussed in last week's letter to the editor) weekend 
in Shreveport. 

First, our student body is notoriously lacking in the 
expression of school spirit. This takes the form of yelling 
for the Demon team at football games, attending pep ral- 
lies, in short, letting everyone know, especially the Demons, 
that we're behind them all the way cheering and rooting 
for them. 

Secondly, too many students are afraid, ashamed, or 
too lazy to stand up and urge the team on. It seems that 
the only ones who openly support our football team are 
the cheerleaders, pom pon girls, and the Greeks, some- 
thing for which the latter is criticized. 

Finally, that extra boost in moral support we might 
give to the team just may be the extra boost they need. 
We need to let them know that they are not the only ones 
in State Fair Stadium who want to wreck Tech tomorrow 
night. And we can't do this by clinging to our seats or 
groping for the bottle that rolled under the seats. 

I had an interesting talk with a Northwestern alumnus 
last week. She summed the situation up poignantly when 
she told me. "If the students of NSC don't get out there 
and show that they support the Demons by yelling and 
singing the 'Fighting Song', then they don't deserve to win!" 

Granted, our school spirit has improved over the last 
couple of years I have been here, thanks largely to the am- 
bitious members of the School Spirit Committee, but there 
is still vast room for improvement. 

This improvement can only come from a student body 
who cares. Enough said. 

We Support You, Demons 

On behalf of the staff of the Current Sauce I am taking 
this opportunity to express our support for the NSC De- 
mons tomorrow night against Louisiana Tech. The Bulldogs 
are undoubtedly the most formidable football foe of the 
season, but this should only make for a great football game, 
not a "rousing defeat". 

What's-his-name with the golden arm is just one of 
the members of the team, and even he is still human, 
believe it or not. 

We know you can beat them, and you, the Demons, 
know it, too, so let's show Tech.

Friends, fans, and members of Demonland— we go to 
bury Terry, not to praise him. 

That's the way it will be Saturday night when The 
Game of the year for Northwestern and La. Tech is played 
at spacious State Fair Stadium in Shreveport. 

Tech does have more weapons in their offensive arsenal 
than their Ail-American Terry Bradshaw. Powerful full- 
back Buster Herron, scatback Bubba Sanchez, who was ef- 
fective in Tech's second half comeback win last year, All- 
Gulf States Conference receiver Tommy Spinks, who has 
teamed with Bradshaw for seven years at Woodlawn and 
La. Poly, and Danish soccer-style place kicker Jorgen Gertz 
add respect to a strong offensive game. 

But Bradshaw, with his accurate bullet-like passing, 
is the driving force behind the Bulldog's success. Stop Brad- 
shaw and you stop La. Tech. 

The Blond Bomber is truly a great passer, but he and 
the boys from Ruston can be beaten. 

As an armchair quarterback, I'm of the opinion that N 
will stick to its basic and successful game plan of a slug-it-out 
ball control offense. You can't score if you don't have the ball 
and Mike Pool will try to direct the Demon attack with 
steady, time-consuming drives. However, Pool, as he demon- 
strated two weeks ago against Northeast (11-18 for 181 
yards), can mix the aerial game with the fine ground at- 
tack that the Purple and White possess. 

It seems that big games bring out the best in great 
competitors. Last year Don Guidry connected with NSC's 
answer to Spinks, Al Phillips, for three touchdowns, and 
Viv Nyvall, who will be playing in his last State Fair Classic, 
electrified the crowd with his determined running and 
slashing punt and kickoff returns. 

What does all this mean in layman's terms. Well sir, 
to win the Demons must go all out on every play. One 
mistake, as was shown last year, can mean the ball game. 

Perhaps, with all the tradition and rivalry connected 
with Tech Weekend, another factor, the GSC race, has been 
overlooked. Saturday's rivals are the only unbeaten teams 
in league play and the winner, certainly for the moment, 
will be in the driver's seat! as far as the championship is 

Statistics mean nothing in this battle. But even so, 
Tech is riding the waves of a 10-game winning streak — 
a streak that started with last year's win over Northwestern. 
The Demons go into the fray with a three-game march 
that has carried them from an opening season loss. 

Head Tech Coach Maxie Lambright is reported to have 
said at the onset of Tech's season, "If we don't win but 
two games this year let's make them Southwestern and 

One out of two isn't bad. 


I've been living right. Another five for six outing last 
week put the season record at 17 right, six wrong for a .736 
percentage. Here goes: 

NSC 31, La Tech 28 — Watch the scoreboard explode 
in this one. McNesse 27, Northeast 20 — Lack of offense 
should drop the Indians' to their fifth loss. Ark. State 28, USL 
14 — It sounds good. Southeast 35, Pensacola Navy 24 — The 
improving Lions come off a 43 point burst in fine fashion. 
Jolly Roger is throwing for Dallas instead of the sailors this 
season. LSU 34, Kentucky 15 — But watch out Tigers Pitts- 
burg 30, Tulane 24 — Pitt makes it three in a row. Baltimore 
Colts 35, N.O. Saints 24 — Fading Colts should find Saints 
secondary to their liking.

Fair Classic On Tap 

By Pesky Hill 

Northwestern and Loui- 
siana Tech, bitter rivals in 
football for almost four dec- 
ades, clash again Saturday 
night in Shreveport's State 
Fair Stadium in what promis- 
es to be one of the largest 
crowds ever to witness the 
annual rivalry. 

Coach Glenn Gossett's De- 
mons have a 3-1 record and a 1-0 
mark in the Gulf States Confer- 
ence, while the Bulldogs are 3-0 
overall and 2-0 in the league. 

The contest will also have a 
definite bearing on the confer- 
ence championship as NSC and 
Tech are the only two teams left 
in the GSC that do not have a 
loop loss. 

Tech Leads In Series 

Coach Maxie Lambright's Rus- 
tonites will carry a commanding 
34-15-4 advantage in the series 
with the Demons. However, in 
the last eight years, NSC has 
won half of the battles. 

NSC will be out for sweet re- 
venge since Tech nipped the De- 
mons 42-39 last season in un- 
doubtedly the most exciting game 
since the series began in 1930. 
The Demons had the victory salt- 
ed away until ail-American quar- 
terback Terry Bradshaw lofted an 
82-yard scoring bomb in the last 
minutes of play for the Tech 

The Bulldogs have a ten game 
winning streak heading into the 
game with the Demons and NSC 
would like nothing better than 
to knock the Bulldogs out of the 
unbeaten ranks. Ironically, the 
Tech string started with the win 
over NSC last season. 

Gossett had this to say about 
the upcoming game: "Tech is 
virtually the same as they were 
last year. They have been picked 
to win the conference by the 
league coaches and they have 
looked good in their first three 
ball games." 

Returning Home 

The Demons will have several 
players that will be returning 
to the field where they played 
many of their high school foot- 
ball games. The Shreveport-Bos-

its powerful running attack that 
has averaged 277 yards per game. 
Halfbacks Vic Nyvall, Papa, Wal- 
lis, fullback Richard Ware, and 
Pool have all shared in the 
ground gaining. 

Pool is also likely to show 
the capacity State Fair Stadium 
crowd a surprising aerial game. 
The junior signal caller has top 
receivers in Al Phillips, Steve 
Gaspard, and Haney. 

Nearing Record 

Gaspard, a 187-pound senior 
tight end, is only one reception 
away from the all-time indivi- 
dual receiving mark at NSC. 
Steve will be looking to break 
the record (72 catches by Dick 
Reding) against the Bulldogs. 

One of the important factors 
of the game will be the perfor- 
mance of the defensive backfield 
of NSC. Safeties Kenny Hrap- 
mann and Boogaerts, along with 
cornerbacks Kenny Callens and 
Ronnie Bagley will try to keep 
the Tech receivers "covered like 
a blanket." 

Also, the Demon defensive line 
will be trying to put a ferocious 
rush on Bradshaw. Ends Randy 
Tate and Mace Morris, tackles 
Mike Burrow and Walter Edler, 
middle guard Alton Geisendorff, 

'and linebackers Lester Latino 
and Larry Gaudet hope to put 
Mr. Bradshaw on the seat of his 
hanpts several times during the 
course of the game. 

Not to be left out for recog- 
nition is NSC's rugged offensive 
line. Center Gary McCrary, 
guards Bobby Koncak and Les- 
lie Robertson, and tackles Leon- 
ard Richardson and Don Miser 
have provided the Demon backs 
with the needed blocking. 

But the question is: What will 
the Demons do to the Bulldogs 
Saturday night? No one really 
knows — but Demon fans are hop- 
ing for a "WRECKED TECH." 

Babe Ruth, recently voted as 
baseball's greatest player ever,

'Fantasticks' Has 
Good Performance 

By G. T. Spence 

With the College Theatre's pro- 
duction of "The Fantasticks", the 
name of Ray Schexnider, the di- 
rector, will have to take a good 
deal of the blame for the way 
my sides have been aching the 
past two days. 

The story told is a simple one. 
Starry-eyed boy meets starry-eyed 
girl; he loves her; she loves her- 
self; therefore girl loves boy be- 
cause he loves her. Tim Gayle, 
as the boy, and Ann Myers, the 
girl, allow each one us to see 
just a little of ourselves in them. 

However, they could have never 
gotten together had it not been 
for the Mute, Leah Rivers; the 
Boy's Father, Bill Basham; the 
Girl's Father, Donnie Couvillion; 
the Narrator (El Gallo), Jack 
Crim; the Old Actor, Joe Lunt; 
and Mortimer, Ken Kavalawski. 

Mr. Crim added a good deal to 
the role of the narrator with his 
rich baritone voice as did some 
of the other cast members with 
their trained voices. At times, 
however, the voices seemed to 
be clashing due to the differ- 
ence in voice quality. Mrs. Hugh 
Curry handled the piano accom- 
piance adequately. 

As a musical, the best known 
song from "The Fantasticks" is 
the ballad, "Try to Remember". 
The songs throughout the play 
seemed to add a great deal to 
the plot through their humor 
and down right honesty. Certainly 
Donnie Couvillion and Mr. Bas- 
ham should be congratulated for 
the job on "Never Say No", as 
should Mr. Crim and the two

Song Fest In Student Union 

PLAY SCENE— Leah Rivers (standing) who plays the part of a 
mute in the 'Fantastics', drops "Snow" on the heads of Tim Gayle 
(Matt) and Ann Myers (Luisa). Tim and Ann have the rolls of the 
young lovers in the play. 

fathers and their rendition 
of "Rape". 

All of the players did a more 
than sufficient job in their roles. 
Joe Lunt, however, seemed to 
outshine the others as he man- 
aged to steal the show whenever 
he was on the stage. Indeed, 
everyone was excellent, but the 
performance of Lunt added a 
great deal to Mr. Schexnider's 

direction and the script provided 
by Harvey Schmidt. 

The cast was outstanding as 
they were mimes, acrobats, danc- 
ers, comedians, and sometimes 
poets. The play, written by Har- 
vey Schmidt and Tom Jones, 
demands this of the actors. 
Certainly everyone who saw the 
play can say to the cast and staff 
that it was nothing less than 

As far as folk music goes, 
it was all happening last Friday 
night in the Student Union 
where a throng of some forty 
music-lovers gathered for a lively, 
informal folk session. 

Students began to appear a- 
round 7:30 p.m., armed with guit- 
ars, banjos, and harmonicas for 
the song fest. Performances were 
strictly spontaneous, and the 
floor was open to anyone who 
wished to entertain. 

One who faced the spotlight 
was Ed Huey, with Dylan's "Talk- 
in' World War III Blues" and 
"Don't Think Twice, It's All 
Rigty," as well as Donpvan's 
haunting "Catch the Wind". G. 
T. Spence entertained with Arlo 
Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant" 
while the audience appreciatively 
sang along. 

Mr. Merlin Mitchell of the NSC 
English Department came through 
with a few traditional western 
folk tunes, while Mr. Stringer, 
also of the English Department, 
delivered, with the able aid of 
his banjo, "Darlin' Corey" and 
other humorous ballads. 

Also highlighting the informal 
program were renditions of Sil- 
ver Dagger," "Number 9 Coal," 
and "Early Mornin' Rain" by 
other talented participants, and 
the rousing "Banks of the Ohio," 
belted by all. 

Merlin Mitchell, the sponsor of 
the folk session, defines its pur- 
pose as "stirring up greater in- 
terest in the lovely lyrical bal- 
lads and other forms of folk 
music that offer fascinating pas- 
time." Mitchell also sees the pos- 
sibility of forming a combo to 
entertain regularly on campus 
and even travel around a bit. 

Everyone is invited to the next 
session, to be held at 7:30 P.M. 

in Room 320 of the Studen 
Union on Friday, October 24. 

According to G.T. Spence, om 
of the session's innovators, every 
thing from the Nashville soun< 
to plaintive lyrical style is wel 
corned, as well as every voice 
from tinkling soprano to boom 
ing bass. The show is on! S< 
come — and bring your enthuiasm 

Frosh Associates 
Elected By SGA 

Ten freshmen associates were 
elected by the Student Govern 
ment Association (SGA) Oct. 13 

Freshmen associates, according 
to Henry Burns, president oi 
SGA, are apprentices to the

are: Janie Arieux, Lone' Beas- 
ley, Kathy Breazeale, Faye David, 
Timothy Gayle, Bobby Harling, 
Anna Lowe, Pam Whitley, John- 
nie Mayeaux, and Roxie Cariere. 

This week the freshmen as- 
sociates were in charge of sell- 
ing NSC hats in the Student 
Union lobby. 

The associates were asked three 
questions. These questions were: 
What experience have you had 
in student government? Why did 
you run for freshman associate? 
and What do you feel is a major 
problem of Northwestern State 

After these questions, members 
of the SGA were allowed to ask 
the candidates questions. The 
associates were elected according 
to their responses to the ques-

SGA To Sponsor 
Benefit Program 

The Student Government As- 
sociation Entertainment Commit- 
tee is looking into the possibili- 
ties of bringing a big name en- 
tertainer to NSC. 

This is not a part of the regu- 
lar entertainment program and 
will not be included in the stu- 
dent entertainment booklets sold 
on campus. 

Proceeds will go to the Day 
Care Center for Retarded Child- 
ren for their building fund. 

The project will be undersign- 
ed by several townspeaple at no 
financial loss to SGA, but they 
will provide the use of the Coli- 
seum, at no cost, and the use of 
their booking facilities. 

A grand prize of $100 will be 
awarded to the campus wide 
winner in any category. 

Four second prizes of $50 each 
will be awarded in separate cate- 

Competing in one category will

ities and sororities) will also vie 
for the prize in their division. 

Religious centers will have a 
chance to take the $50 award, 
while a fourth category of Spec- 
ial groups such as departmental 
groups and honorary organiza- 
tions will try for the final prize.

Students Urged 
Not To Loan 
Meal Tickets 

Students are urged not to loan 
their meal tickets to those who 
do not have them. 

If students are permitted to 
loan out meal tickets, the price 
charged for them will have to 
be increased accordingly. 

According to Business Manager 
Ted Wright, this problem is par- 
ticularly bad on the weekends. 
The personnel of Saga Food Ser- 
vices have estimated the number 
of students remaining on cam- 
pus for the weekend and have 
based their weekend budget on 
this amount. 

Saga Food Services pays the 
salary of the kitchen personnel, 
in addition, to furnishing the 
food. NSC merely furnishes the 
cafeteria, the student help, and 
the mouths to feed.

Fine Arts Committee Plans 
Window-Painting Contest 


A Christmas window-paintiing 
contest was the highlighted sub- 
ject of the Fine' Arts Committee 
meeting for the Student Union 
last Monday. 

The committee plans a recur- 
rence of last year's popular com- 
petition, in which all campus or- 
ganizations were invited to deco- 
rate a window of the Student 
Union, carrying out a Christmas 
theme. The windows will be 
judged and awarded first, second 
and third place plaques, and a 
larger plaque commemorating 
the top winner will be displayed 
in the Student Union until next 

According to Committee Chair- 
man Paul Bennett, all campus 
organizations will be notified 
arouind Nov. 1 of an assembly to 
discuss the contest. All will be 
asked to send a representative 
to the gathering. At this meeting, 
windows will be assigned by lot- 
tery and the delegates will be 
briefed on the rules, deadlines, 
and overall theme of the contest. 

Other plans in-the-making in- 
troduced by the committee were 
a contest for the best Christmas 
tree ornament design, the present- 
ing of "certificates of appreci- 
ation" to all Student Union Com- 
mittee workers, and action to 
spur the lagging Soap Box Assem 
blies held weekly in the Union 

The tournament competition, 
open also to all campus organiza- 
tions, will be judged as represen- 
tatives from each group hang the 
token on the musical Christmas 
tree featured each year in the 
Union. Chairman Bennett stated 
that the event will probobly take 
place the day before the annual 
tow n lighting on Dec. 6. 

"Certificates of appreciation" 
are presently being designed by 
the committee. They will be a- 
warded to anyone who has par- 
ticipated on a Student Union 
Committee. These crews, provid- 
ed for by the SGA Constitution, 
operate strictly on voluntary 

No decision has been reached 
concerning drooping interest in 
the Soap Box Assemblies, but the 
committee is considering several 

possibilities to create interest the committee will meet each 

and give the speech alley the Monday at 6:00 p.m. in the Stu- 

boost it needs. dent Unio n for further discussion 

Bennett announced finally that of plans and interests.

NSC Officials Taste 
Tech's Crow Monday 

NSC President Arnold R. Kil- 
patrick, Dean of Students Dud- 
ley G. Fulton, and Student Body 
President Henry Burns enjoyed 
a succulent meal of crow Mon- 
day afternoon before some 2,000 
members of the Louisiana Tech 
student body. 

The meal resulted from a chal- 
lenge issued by the three leaders 
of the college to the correspond- 
ing officers of Tech last week, 
and the subsequent loss of the 
State Fair Classic football game 
last weekend to the Bulldogs. 

The challenge stated, "The 
president, dean of students, and 
student body president of the 
school which loses the State Fair 
game will annually be committed 
to eat crow on the Monday fol- 
lowing Northwestern-Tech Week- 

"This crow will be prepared 
by the winning school, and the 
three representatives of the los- 
ing school must travel to the 
campus of the winning school to 
eat the crow in full view of stu- 
dents, faculty, press, and tele-

Sociology Class 
Takes Field Trip 

A juvenile court and state 
training school were visited by 
the sociology students of North- 
western; Tuesday. Members of 
the Juvenile Delinquency class 
visited Louisiana Technical In- 
stitute at Monroe and the Juvenile 
Court of Caddo Parish at Shreve- 

On their arrival at the Monroe 
Institution they were oriented 
by Assistant Superintendent Fred 
Lindsey. Following this a walk- 
ing tour of the campus was made 
to observe various elements of 
the institutional program. 

Journeying then to Shreveport 
they were greeted by Judge Gor- 
man Taylor at Caddo Juvenile 
Court. Al Mazur, administrator 
and chief probation officer, then 
showed the students the detention 
home which is a portion of this 

This field trip was the culmi- 
nation of classroom study of 
juvenile correctional services. Ac- 
cording to Dr. Millard J. Bien- 
venu, Head of the Sociology De- 
partment, this was one of several 
field experiences designed to 
give sociology and social welfare 
majors a closer look at the ser- 
vices needed in the rehabilita- 
tion of delinquent youth. 

rick, Fulton, and Burns were 
guided around the campus and 
consulted with some officials of 
Louisiana Tech.

Northwestern Elementary 
Serves Students As Lab 

By Donna Searcy 

Northwestern Elementary School 
provides an excellent laboratory 
. school for approximately 900 NSC 
students in teacher education. 

The average NSC goer doesn't 
realize how many of' our students 
invade the classrooms of the 
children to make observations in 
fulfillment for various courses. 
To begin with, Education 102 
classes make general observations 
throughout the school as an in- 
troduction to the teaching field. 

Students enrolled in Education- 
al Psychology 201 make a num- 
ber of visits to study teaching 
procedures and learning tech- 
nique. In addition, those in Child 
Growth and Development 303 
study one specific child includ- 
ing a case study, conferences 
with the teacher and parents of 
the child, and observations of 
him, in the classroom. 

Dr. Leonard F. Fowler stated 
that seniors in their professional 
semester in this field take 14 

hours of methods courses and 
observe a minimum of five hours 
per week. They not only observe, 
but help the teacher teach, to 
some extent. This experience 
better prepares the student to 
tackle his student teaching the 
next semester and also aides the 

Physical education majors in 
PE 215 and PE 315 make their 
initial contact with the elemen- 
tary school in some observation- 
participation activities. Swimm- 
ing is taught to the children by 
NSC method classes in swimm- 
ing under the supervision of the 

This semester, about 40 stu- 
dents in PE 402C are working 
in pairs to teach physical educa- 
tion to children in grades 3-6. 
This is a good balanced program 
helping prepare the college stu- 
dent for student teaching and 

In addition, Margaret Atkins 
has several music majors doing 
their student teaching this fall 

with her. Some Music 30A and 
30B classes from NSC are requir- 
ed to observe in the elementary 

Apart from observers, the work 
scholarship program assigns at 
least one college student to each 
teacher to serve as a teacher 
aid. This helps the student pay 
his way through school, and 
renders assistance to the teacher. 

College seniors preparing to 
teach school may take the Na- 
tional Teacher Examination on 
any of the four different test 
dates anounced by the Educa- 
tional Testing Service, a nonpro- 
fit, educational organization 
which prepares and administers 
this testing program. Results of 
the examination are used by 
many large school districts as one 
of the several factors in the selec- 
tion of new teachers and by sev- 
eral states for certification or 
licensing of teachers. 

NSC Band Will Play 
AtLSU Conference 

Be sure brain is engaged be- 
fore putting mouth in gear. 

Northwestern's 160 - member 
Band has been selected to per- 
form for the Southern Divisional 
Meeting of the College Band Di- 
rectors National Association on 
April 2-4. 

J. H. Reynolds of Ruston, presi- 
dent of the Southern Division of 
the College Band Directors Na- 
tional Association, made the an- 
nouncement that the NSC band 
is one of only five bands from 
throughout the South chosen to 
participate in the three-day con- 
ference on the LSU campus. 

Directed by J. Robert Smith, 
the Demon Band will present a 
full one and one-half hour con- 

cert program during a general 
assembly which will be attended 
by more than 300 college band 

Assisting Smith with the band 
during the performance will be 
John Raush, assistant director of 
bands at Northwestern. 

Bands selected to perform were 
chosen on a competitive basis 
from among hundreds of bands 
throughout the South. Tapes and 
recordings were submitted to 
judges from outside the Southern 
District, and the judges selected 
the five bands.

NSC Selected As A Satellite 
Network Information Center 

Northwestern has been select 
ed as a satellite informotion cen- 
ter for the nation-wide Reading 
Resources Network. 

Announcement of the selection 
of Northwestern as an informa- 
tion center was made by the Ed- 
ucational Re arch Information cen- 
ter and The Clearinghouse on 
Retrieval of Information and 
Evaluation of Reading. The or- 
ganization is known as ERIC- 

Northwestern will be one of 
cnly 20 such satellite centers in 
the United States. It is the only 
one in Louisiana and one of only 
two in the South. 

Dr. Mildred H. Bailey, profes- 
sor of education and director of 
the NSC Reading Center, will 
serve as coordinator of the infor- 
mation center. 

Dr. Bailey said the center will 
be housed in the Northwestern 
Reading Center in Warren Easton 
Hall but will be moved upon the 
completion of the Teacher-Educa- 
tion Center early next year. The 
permanent home for the informa- 
tion unit will be in the Teacher- 
Education Center. 

The national reading clearing- 
house is a joint project of the 
International Reading Assocation 
and Indiana University. The pro- 
gram is funded by the U.S. Office 
of Education. 

Plans call for the clearing- 
house to acquire, evaluate, ab- 
stract, store, retrieve and dissem- 
inate all of the information and 
research on reading since 1900. 
This information will be stored 
at the information center at 
Indiana University . 

Indiana University will prepare 
copies of ail of the research data 
zmd send the material to the 20 
satellite centers. Dr. Bailey said 
the new center will add some 
2,500 volumes to the college's 
present library holdings. 

Students, educators and read- 
ing specialists throughout the 

Southern part of the United 
States will utilize the material 
and facilities of the newly-estab- 
lished satellite center at North- 

Literary Works 
Being Accepted 

The staff of the Cane River 
Anthology, the NSC student liter- 
ary publication, is now accepting 
manuscript for consideration at 
the English department office in 
Room 316 in the Arts and Scien- 
ces Building. 

Students wishing to submit 
poems, short stories, plays or es- 
says or critical works should 
turn them in as quickly as pos- 
sible, according to Joseph Lunt, 

Publication dates will be in 
late November or early Decem- 
ber. The other co-editor is Michael 
Colvin, a graduate assistant in 
the English department. 

Copy Service 
Rates Raised 

Donald N. MacKenzie, head li- 
brarian here, announced that the 
rates for all copying strvice in 
the NSC library will be increas- 

The new charge beginning Nov. 
1 will 10 cents, rather than the 
five cents presently charged. In 
addition, the price for points 
made on the Reader-Printers will 
be raised to 20 cents per copy. 

Xerox copying was introduced 
on this campus in 1964 and has 
been run at the five cents rate 
from that time. 

The new rate, according to Mac- 
Kenzie, is necessiated by increas- 
ed costs of materials and an ur- 
gent requirement that the ser- 
vice pay for itself without sub-

Do You Think So? 

By Niva Chavez 

Students are faced with choos- 
ing a college each year. One 
might wonder what influences 
these decisions. The following 
statements are some of the rea- 
sons NSC students chose North- 
western as their college. 

"I was interested in gymnas- 
tics and NSC has one of the best 
gymnastic programs in the coun- 
try." — Douglas Brown, Rockport, 
Mass. - 

"It was the nearest college." — 
Jack Morrash, Alexandria. 

"My brother and sister attend- 
ed NSC and really enjoyed it, 
so I decided to come here." — 
Beth Spivey, Shreveport. 

"I don't know, I just liked it." 
— Jay R. Faneie, Winnfield. 

"I just like NSC. I think the 
campus is pretty. The school of 
education is a good one. That is 
my major. My parents attended 
Northwestern and my sister is 
going here now. It is also close 
to home." — Gayle Powell, Shreve- 

"I chose this college partly be- 
cause it is one of the cheapest 
in the nation and also because 
my mom is residing in Loui- 
siana." — Mark Tendrich, Teaneck, 
New Jersey. 

"I was tired of my exciting 
life and I wanted to go to a dull 
college and rest." — Yogi Urias, 
New Orleans. 

"I was close to home and the 
school in my major was good. 
The campus is pretty. A lot of 
my friends go here, too." — 
Stephanie Allen, Shreveport. 

"It was a choice between Tech 
and Northwestern. The outside 
employment opportunities were 
better here. It is a small school, 
too, and I liked that." — Tom 
Welch, Natchitoches. 

"NSC is a small school and I 
heard about it. I visited the cam- 
pus and I liked it. A lot of my 
friends were attending, too." — 
Shirley Snyder, Pineville. 

"It has high academic stand- 
ards. People from all over the 
United States and the world at- 
tend NSC. Most of the people 
are friendly." — Larry Spurgeon, 

. "It was the nearest college and 
I had to commute." — Kathy Thibo- 
deaux, Ville Platte. 

"I couldn't pass entrance re- 
quirements for Tech." — Leslie 
Johnson, Readhimer.

The AMS Report 

By Bill Thrash 

At last contact has been made with the sometimes hard 
to find Allen and Allen Vending machine operators. This was 
accomplished Tuesday, October 7, at the regularly schedul- 
ed A. M. S. meeting. * • 

Representing A&A were Mr. Duke and Mr. Phips. They 
became the object of many questions and complaints con- 
cerning the operation and maintenance of the vending ma- 
chines in dorms on campus. 

As the representatives from each mens' dorm gave his 
comment or question, the representatives from A&A took 
notes on the questions then tried objectively to answer 
each question. 

A&A ask that the AMS appoint a student to meet with 
them on a regular basis to discuss the needs of the students 
and the problems concerning operation of the machines. 
Kirk Guidry, who is also chairman of the Student Services 
Committee, was appointed to this post. 

A little cooperation on the part of the students was 
asked for by A&A in that they ask that students call the 
numbers on the machines to report a malfunction and not 
damage the machines by beating on them. 

Perhaps now that the initial step has been made, A&A 
and the students of NSC can both work together for the 
benefit of all. 

Minutes of SGA

As I See It 

By David Precht 

NSC students seem to be preoccupied with a number 
of things— class work, grades, the draft, parties, and the 
hst goes on. But one item not often included^ our thoughts 

£i?fc °M he . ? 0U u ege - This 15 understandable, yet 

™ nL S01 I!- thmg , that 18 ^ginning to warrant an increas- 
ed £«? P K^ 10n ■£ ^/oncem for it is now affecting this 
student body rather adversely. 

The quality of education here is consistently showing 
improvement, or at least it seems to be judging from thi 

SSS-tf 1 If Ve WUh S01 ^ ° f my Classes - This " somewhat 
incredible when one considers the facts that each year NSC 
seems to undergo a cut in state and federal funds. 

In a speech before the Student Personnel Association 
last week, President Kilpatrick stated that Northwestern is 
operating on a budget for 1966. And this is despite in- 
creased enrollment and the ever-rising cost of living. 

One school in this state, LSU, has been spared in this 
wave of frugality. In an obvious attempt to create Loui- 
intLW "^g^rsity, LSU is liberally granted increases 
m funds disproportionate with their percentage of Louisiana 
students in comparison with the other state schools. 

In the half-time show of a recent USL football game 
the majorettes and other performing groups presented a 
skit satirizing the imbalance of state education funding 
Therefore the pinch on the smaller state schools is being 
felt by others than NSC. 

One of the areas the cutback is felt here is financial 
aid. Only two years ago, the Financial Aid Department was 
almost begging for students to fill job openings on campus. 
Soon after the first cut in the budget, however, student 
personnel began finding it difficult to get any kind of em- 
ployment here. 

In ,u ad u ition ' a " ful1 " scholarship no longer fulfills its 
title, this has come about because fees are necessarily being 
increased while there just isn't enough money to increase 
the scholarships. 

In other areas, NSC is not getting enough money to 
adequately uphold the standards recently set in several 
of its programs, including athletics, research, building re- 
cruiting, and several others. 

It is getting to the point where the president of this 
college is having to sacrifice much of his valuable adminis- 
trative time to go "begging" for money from the State 
Board of Education and the State Legislature. Meanwhile 
back at the college, we have to "tighten our belts" and get 
by with what we have. 

As this problem concerns all students here, it therefore 
becomes the duty of the student body to seek to help balance 
the scales and get our share of money back in the kitty here. 

One way to do this is to pull Mom and Dad into the 
situation since in many cases they have to cover the dif- 
ference wrought by the cutbacks. The legislative power 
of eight or nine thousand parents is a power not to be ignored 
in Louisiana's legislature. 

Our parents need to get out pen and paper and let 
their state legislators know that the favoritism being be- 
stowed upon the "Fighting Tigers" is not going unnoticed 
among their respective constituents. Perhaps this is the

Letters to the Editor 

After reading the latest in a 
long line of nauseating issues of 
the Current Sauce I am compelled 
to write this letter. 

At the beginning of the se- 
mester an editorial appeared in 
the paper in which it was stated 
that all controversial topics 
would be presented objectively. 
Yet, in the same article, it was 
declared that the administration 
would not be critisized. Hardly 

Thus, instead of an article on 
the monopolistic tactics of the 
book store, we find, in the most 
recent issue (front page too) a 
most absurd poem. After reading 
it I was in a state of mixed 
emotions, feeling like I was going 
to be sick, and, at the same time, 
wanting to laugh. 

The past issues are quite ef- 
fective for lining bird cages and 
garbage cans. I hope it will im- 

Jim Schmitt 

(EDITOR'S NOTE: We fail to 
see the correlation between the 
sports editor's front page poem 
and the editorial policy of° the 
paper. Furthermore, it is a gross 
misstatement to say that we said 
the administration would not be 
criticized. We did say that the 
administration would not be 
blindly attackend. 

Finally, realizing that some stu- 
dents, notably the author of this 
letter, will never be pleased, it 
is satisfying to find that he has 
found some way to put the Cur- 
rent Sauce to good use.)

Lynn Rollins 

Now that all the hullaballoo concerning Tech Weekend 
is over and everyone has recovered (I hope), its time to 
face the sobering fact that Northwestern met and was 
beaten by a better (I'm still loyal) team. 

In the standings, losing to La. Tech is like losing to 
any other Gulf States Conference foe, and the standings 
and record at the end of the year is what is looked at by 
most observers to determine the success of the campaign. 

Now don't get me wrong. Winning the Tech Game is a 
justified matter of pride. But the fact that NSC lost is not 
the end of the world. 

Perhaps the real issue is this. What will the Demons 
do in the remaining four games of the year? 

I hope what happens this year is not similar to the 
endings the Demons have experienced in the past two sea- 
sons. Think back to 1967 and the first year that head 
coach Glenn Gossett had the field reins. The Demons that 
year ripped off five straight wins and then dropped a 
squeaker to Troy State, a 14-point loss to McNeese be- 
fore putting Southwestern down, and then losing to the 
recent year nemesis, Southeast. 

Last year found the Purple and White edged out in 
the opener and then starting a four-game win streak that 
lasted until the Tech match. 

But then with a 4-2 record and a good shot at the 
GSC title things began to happen. The Demons rebounded 
against McNeese but played listless ball in the final games 
with USL and SLC and finished with a 5-4 slate and a two 
game losing streak. 

This year the stage is again set as it has been in the 
past. Gossett's crew lost their opener, marched out a three- 
game streak, and fell once more to the Bulldogs. 

The .Demons should come back this week against Ja 
sonville St. but what will happen when NSC finishes with 
McNeese, USL, and SLC? The Purple and White have the 
material to sweep the last four games and finish 7-2. But 
is the attitude there? I hope so. 

This Week's Forecast 

Although I'm still looking for my first perfect prediction 
week, a five out of seven outing last go-around brought 
the season record to 22 right, eight wrong, for a .733 per- 
centage. (The World Series does not count.) 

NSC 28, Jacksonville St. 17— The word is out that the 
Gamecocks are "quick and mean" but a large Mom and 
Dad's Day crowd should help inspire the Demons in their 
post-Tech comeback bid. Southeast 21, Northeast 14 — The 
Lions, gaining confidence and respect each week, are above 
the .500 mark (3-2) and should drop the Joe Profit-led 
Indians to their sixth loss without a win. USL 21, Lamar 
Tech 20 — The defending GSC champions have been pushed 
around this year but they should have enough left for a 
squeaker in Texas. McNeese 30, Pensacola Navy 28 — McNeese 
must be saying, "If Southeastern can do it, so can we." The 
Lions bumped the sailors last week at home and the Cow- 
boys, with a crushing running game, will shine in the 
Florida sun. La. Tech 38, Chatanooga 10 — The Bulldogs, 
past maybe their biggest hurdle, smell a perfect season. 
LSU 28, Auburn 14 — Tigers may be looking ahead to the 
big one (Ole Miss) next week, but homecoming festivities 
at the Snake Pit (Tiger Stadium) should keep enough of 
their thoughts on the business at hand. Notre Dame 49, 
Tulane — Mercy! The Wave will be flattened to a ripple. 
At least nobody can blame the Grennies for scheduling 
"wins" instead of attractive games. Philadelphia Eagles 31, 
N. O. Saints 27 — Saints might record their first win of the 
year but with the home stadium advantage and Sam Snead, 
I'll go with the Eagles.

Northwestern, after dropping a 
42-21 loss to arch-rival Louisiana 
Tech last week, tries to bounce 
back Saturday night by hosting 
Jacksonville State University of 
Alabama at Demttn Stadium. 

The Demons had a three-game 
winning streak broken Saturday 
night in Shreveport but Coach 
Glenn Gossett is hoping NSC can 
start another win skein tomor- 
row night against the Gamecocks. 

Despite the loss, Northwestern 
remains in a three-way tie for 
second place in the Gulf States 
Conference with a 1-1 record. 
Overall, the Demons will bring a 
3-2 record into the game with 
JSU while the visitors will 
counter with a 2-3 mark. 

Two Way Threat 

Jacksonville, a member of the 
Alabama Collegiate Conference, 
has a strong passer in quarter- 
back Ken Lett. Lett also has a 
talented groups of receivers in 
split end Mike Munhlall, tight 
end Bruce Nichols, and flanker 
Bobby Marcum. 

"Their passing game is mot the 
only threat which Jacksonville 
can throw at us," the Demon 
mentor commented. "Bubba Long 
(6-1, 205, senior fullback) is sup- 
posed to be the best runner to 
come out of Jacksonville State. 
And his performances in the 
films we've seen certainly bears 
out that reputation, Gossett 

Head coach of the Gamecocks 
is Charley Pell, a member of the 
1961 national championship team 
at the University of Alabama 
under Paul "Bear" Bryant. 

Papa Returns 

An important factor in the 
game tomorrow night will be the 
return of halfback Tony Papa to 
the starting line-up. Out for four 
weeks with a badly bruised ankle, 
Tony saw action in the second 
half of the Tech game and was 
commended for his performance. 

A 5-6, 168-pounder from Shreve- 
port-Jesuit, Papa is expected to 
add considerable punch to an 
already powerful Demon rushing 
game. Tony was the total offense 
leader on the team after the first 
game, but was injured in the first 
quarter of the second game. 

Joining Papa in the NSC back- 
field will be versatile Vic Nyvall, 
fullback Richard Ware and quar- 
terback Mike Pool. Tommy Wallis 
who filled in capably for Papa in 
his absence, will also see plenty 
of action at both halfback slots. 

John McClendon, a sturdily- 
built 195-pound junior quarter- 
back who has been hampered by 
leg injuries, was a bright spot in 
the loss to Tech. McClendon came 

Demon basketball teams have 
won five Gulf States Conference 
titles including back to back 
championships in 1954 and 1955. 
The last crown was captured in 

off the bench in the forth quart- 
er and engineered the Demons to 
their final touchdown. John had 
45 yards on three carries, includ- 
ing a 17-yard TD run. 

Sparking the offensive line as 
they have done all season were 
guards Leslie Robertson and 
Bobby Koncak. Robertson got 
praise from Gossett for his block- 
ing against Tech while Koncak 
recorded 27 knockdowns against 
the Bulldogs. 

^ Defensive Changes 

A few change* i n the defensive 
line-up for the Demons tomorrow 
night will have sophomore defen- 
sive end Greg Clark, a 186-pound- 
er from Dallas, Tex., taking over 
for Randy Tate and Tommy Plai- 
sance may possibly be inserted 
for an injured Lester Latino at

tomorrow night when the Demons 
host Jacksonville St. in the an- 
nual Mom and Dad's Day game.

Achilles tendon in the second 
game of the year, has gained 128 
yards on 19 carries for a 6.7 yard

'Be Prepared' Is Early Theme 
For Hildebrand's Rou ndballers 

Cage Boss Pleased 
With Squad's Condition 

"Be Prepared" may be the Boy 
Scout motto but to head basket- 
ball coach Tynes Hildebrand and 
his assistant Don Beasley, it also 
applies to the 1969-70 Demon cage 

The NSC roundballers have 
been working under the direction 
of the coaches since Oct. 15 and 
went through an extensive three- 
week conditioning program be- 
fore practice began. 

"The entire squad did sit-ups, 
pull-ups, and jumping drills, and 
ran for three weeks," Hildebrand 
said. "Everybody excepts one 
broke six minutes in the mile." 

For the past week and a half 
the team has been working on 
fundamentals in Prather Coli- 
seum. Hildebrand has been stress- 
ing fundamentals in the early go- 
ing — especially man-to-man de- 
fense and fast breaks. 

Run and Shoot 

"We will definitely run and 
shoot more this year and try to 
fast break and press defensively 
every time we get the chance. We 
will also probably zone press, 
trap, and use the various zone 
defenses. With our personnel we 
should be able to fit the need to 
the situation," the cage boss com- 

Hildebrand, entering his fifth 
season as leader of the Demon 
basketball program, will bring a 
54-50 coaching record into the 
coming season. 

Beasley, a former All-Gulf 
States Conference quarterback 

for Northwestern, took over as 
Hildebrand's right hand man in 

Outlook Bright 

Although losing two All-GSC 
performers in James Wyatt and 
Pete Gray, the outlook appears 
to be bright this year. All-GSC 
center, 6-8 Charles Bloodworth 
guard Doug Watts, and forward 
Jerry Masters are the three sen- 
iors on the squad. 

Junior lettermen include guards 
Allen Posey and Johnny Janese. 
Sophomore Carlton Walding, who 
saw starting time last year, adds 
strength to the front and back 

Hildebrand was highly satis- 
fied with the conditioning show- 
ed during the first week of prac- 
tice but he was displeased with 
the lack of depth strength. "Be- 
fore practice started I though our 
bench would be a very positive 
factor for this season but so far 
I haven't seen any proof of this. 
We have had a few boys injur- 
ed however and maybe we can 
start coming around in this area."

regarded North Texas State

There's No Glory In Leslie 
Robertson's Lineman Position 

Is there any glory in football 
for an offensive lineman? 

Northwestern guard Leslie 
Robertson doesn't mind all the 
publicity given to the fellows that 
score the touchdowns. He's just 
content on doing his job — 

Robertson, a 220-pound junior 
from LaGrange High of Lake 
Charles, has been one of the 
leaders in the Demon offensive 
line this fall. He along with the 
other linemen have provided NSC 
backs with plenty of running 

When asked what he enjoys 
most about his position he said, 
"The challenge of meeting a man 
one on one and keeping him 
away from the ball carrier is 
what I look forward to in a ball 

Transferring from Louisiana 
College this season when the 
Wildcats dropped football from 
their agenda, Robertson had his 
most outstanding game of the 
campaign in a 35-24 triumph over 
Tennessee Tech. For his efforts, 


Leslie received the offensive 
line award for that week. 

Demon Head Mentor Glenn 
Gossett says of Robertson, "He's 
been a workhorse all year. Les- 
lie doesn't have a lot to say but 
he does a real fine job. I think 
he's steadily improving in each 

An above average student, 
Gossett adds, "Leslie is also a 
good student of the game, learns 
well, reacts well, accepts his 

mistakes and corrects them." 

In a losing cause against Tech, 
Robertson received praise from 
scribes covering the game as well 
as Gossett. Leslie has impressed 
onlookers with hi s versatility and 

On two different occasion this 
season, Robertson had 22 knock- 
downs in a game. Through five 
tussles, the Lake Charles product 
has more than 80 knockdowns.

Students Participate 
In Laboratory School 

This year Northwestern has 
fifty-six of its students partici- 
pating in the Laboratory School, 
an institution of the School of 
Education. These students are 
from the methods classes of all 
departments of education and are 
getting their pre-student teacher 

Each student works five hours 
a week, thus seventy hours for 
the first term of their profes- 
sional semester on the road to 
becoming the teacher of tomor- 
row. These observation-participa- 
tion students, with a supervising 
teacher, work and teach children 
in classes ranging from kinder- 
garten to sixth grade. 

Before a college student par- 
ticipates in the Laboratory School 
he must complete Education 102, 
which is a general observation 
course. Here he learns the organi- 
zation 'and administration of the 
school principles of learning, and 
makes a general observation of 
the classroom. 

Then in Psychology 201 and 
Psychology 303, the student 
learns the different techniquqes 
of teaching and with the help of 
a supervising teacher, the college 
student evaluates a certain child. 
He studies the child's record, his 
past grades, and the child's 

When the college student choos- 
es a child to study, he can choose 
one who is a fast learner, a slow 
learner, and average learner, or 
all three. 

After completing these three 
prerequisite courses, the college 
student enrolls in a fourteen hour 
methods course, for observation- 
participation. Here he helps the 
teacher with the actual teaching 
on a co-operative teaching basis, 
leaving all the dirty work for 
the student aides, hired by the 

This year besides the regular

Demonstrations Given 
At Music Conference 

By Lenetto Thornsberry 

The annual Vocal Music Con- 
ference was held on Oct. 10-11 
in the NSC Student Union. It 
was sponsored jointly by the 
music section of the State Dept. 
of Education and the Louisiana 
Music Educators Association. 

The purpose of the conference 
was to give in service training 
to music specialists and teachers. 

Two music specialists were pre- 
sent to give several demonstra- 
tions of their techniques. Miss 
Dorothy Ward, music consultant 
for Prentice-Hall, Inc. gave dem- 
onstrations on elementary school 
techniques. Lee Kjelson, chair- 
man of music education at the 
University of Miami, gave demon- 
strations on secondary school and

Evelyn Quinn Likes Her Music 

By Deloris Mays 

The room vibrates with the 
sounds of Wes Montgomery blar- 
ing through twin speakers at op- 
posite ends of the room. In the 
middle of her bed Evelyn Quinn 
sits cross-legged and produces 
four melodies for her counter- 
point class. 

A junior this semester, her ma- 
jor is voice with a minor in piano. 
Jeannette, her preferred name, 
is completely at home with all 
types of music. 

Admitting that her record col- 
lection is not vast she then says 
that she likes to experience new 
things and buys according to 
mood This is noticed by the fact 
that one album jacket is entitled 
"The Spectacular Sound of Stra- 
vinsky" and another "Blood, 
Sweat, and Tears"— both albums 
from the same collection. She 
laughs and admits that one of 
her latest favorites is "A Boy 
Named Sue." 

A native of Mansfield, Jean- 
nette graduated from All Saints 
High School as valedictorian. 
Even in high school though, Jean- 
nette's first love was her music. 
She represented All Saints at 
several district and zone rallies 
and gathered superior and sec- 
ond superior ratings. 

In the summer of 1967 Jean- 
nette became a Demon. She had 
been on campus before while par- 
ticipating in a biology program 
for high schoolers. The campus 
impressed her so much she could 
not wait to attend her first class 
as a part of it She presently 

serves as second alto section lead- 
er of the choir. Also she sings 
in the Chorale and Chamber 

Although preoccupied with 
music Jeanette enjoys reading 
novels and poetry. A present love 
is Rod McKuen, one of the besl 
lyrical poets in America. 

"Listening t* him through his 
poetry is a totailvl new experience 
from the very first. It puts me 
in another world. His latest col- 
lection, Listen To The Warm is 
simply unbelievable. 

Often classes and recitals re-

The story is a comedy drama 
rated "R", with a look into 
Caesar's Palace, the fantastic 
gambling-hotel-entertainment en- 
terprise with all its topless danc- 
ers and many gamblers. 

Showing before Where It's At 
at the Don will be Guess Who's 
Coming to Dinner? from Oct. 22 
through 25. The movie stars Sid- 
ney Poitier, Katharine Hepburn, 
and Spencer Tracy. Starting on 
Oct. 26 and continuing through 
Oct. 28 will be the much talked- 
about Candy for those who miss- 
ed it. 

At the Cane 

A movie called Daddy's Gone 
A-Hunting is coming to the Cane 
Theatre on Oct. 26. and will be 
playing through the 28. Daddy's 
Gone A-Hunting stars Carol 
White, Paul Burke, and Scott Hy- 
land in a very unusual movie 
with a rare combination of a love 
story and a thriller. 

The story begins as Carol White 
arrives in San Francisco and 
meets Scott Hylands. He gets her 
a job and helps her get settled 
and then moves in with her and 
lives off her earnings. She tells 
him to get a job, they have a 
fight, and he throws her out of 
her own apartment. 

She discovers she is pregnant 
and has an abortion. When Hy- 
lands finds out about the abor- 
tion he nearly goe s mad. Mean- 
while White meets successful 
lawyer Paul Burge at a party. 
They fall in love, get married, 
and shortly after have a baby. 
White tries to avoid Hylands, 
but sees him everywhere. He de- 
cides he must kill the baby in 
order to get even with her for 
killing his. Many horrifying ex- 
periences and a wild chase are 
ended when Hylands is killed. 

Daddy's Gone A-Hunting is rat- 
ed "M", and is a movie to keep 
a person on the edge of his seat 
until the very end.

College shows that Caddo Parish 
is the school's leading contributor 
of students this fall. 

Caddo, which for several years 
has had the largest number of 
students at Northwestern of all 
the Louisiana parishes, is repre- 
sented by 521 women and 509 men 
for a total of 1,030. 

Natchitoches Parish has the 
stcond largest number of stu- 
dents with 727, but an additional 
150 married students from 
throughout the state are now list- 
ing addresses in Natchitoches. 

The third largest contributor 
of students to Northwestern is 
Rapides with 619, including 313 
men and 306 women. 

Bossier Parish is fourth with an 
enrollment of 332, giving the Cad- 
do- Bossier Parish area a total 
of 1,362. Caddo and Bossier Par- 
ishes have 23 percent of the 
Northwestern student population.

fs Not The Same Any More 

By David Precht 
In case you haven't noticed anything 
I different about this week's issue, we've grown! 

For the first time in the history of 
fjorthwestern, from the founding of 
newspaper 55 years ago, the Current Sauce is 
| being printed full size, rather than tabloid. 

It has taken weeks of investigating, 
! bargaining, and planning, but now one of my 
major goals as editor of this newspaper has 
, been accompolished Hereafter, the Current 
Sauce will be printed the size it is today. Any 
| alterations to be found will be a possible 
I increase in the number of pages held herein. 

The entire staff of the Current Sauce have 
| been striving to produce a more readable, 
I interesting, informative collegiate newspaper. 

Now that the obstacle of space has been 
I removed, we should be better able to serve the 
I students of Northwestern more effectively. 

As you can see, with the paper twice its 
I former size, the pictures are sharper and the 
I print is somewhat easier to read. In addition, 
you will probably note that the stories are 
I more thorough in the treatment of their topics. 
This, too, has been afforded by the additional 

As stated earlier, this was one of my 
primary goals, but I have others, and will 
continue to work toward their achievement. 
' Incidentally, a few weeks ago, Spanky Baker 
challenged me to make this improvement 
before he improved the speaker program here. 
I only regret that the challenge did not include 
the stipulation that the loser would have to 
"eat crow."

Riots and looting are 
more prevalent in bigcity 
ghettos than on the cam- 
puses of small southern col- 
leges. However, this wasn't 
the case at Northwestern on 
the night of Thursday, Oct. 

A "panty raid" which 
began at approximately 
11:30 p.m. resulted in nume- 
rous acts of vandalism and 
theft. Louisiana, Varnado, 
Carondelet, Caddo, and Sa- 
bine, women's dormitories, 
were all entered by male 

According to Dean Dudley 
Fulton, some of the women's 
residence halls show 
evidence of the windows 
being opened by the female 
students inside and the 
"raiders" being allowed to 
enter in this manner. In 
other instances entrance 
was gained by force. 

After the dorms were 
broken into at least one 
room in each was entered 
and ransacked. Articles 
ranging from feminine 
underclothing to photo- 
graphs were reported stolen 
during the fracas which 
continued intermittently 
throughout the night. 

The thievery was confined 
to just a few rooms 
considering the number of 
dorms entered. Some 
students reported losing bet- 
ween $50 and $100, on the 
average, in personal belon- 
gings. Caddo Hall was the 
hardest hit with a total of 
$533.85 worth of articles 
being stolen from the 

Dean Leonard O. Nichols 
estimated that 150 to 200 
men participated in the 
panty raid, and he said the 
majority were just out to 

have a little fun. The few 
who did the looting used the 
general confusion to mask 
their activities. 

No outside law 
enforcement was called in to 
help control the unrest as 
was the case in a panty raid 
which occured last fall. 
Campus Security made no 
arrests on the night of the 
fray, and so far no arrests 
have been made in con- 
nection with the vandalism 
and looting which occured. 

Two women suffered 
injuries during the night. 
Nancy Fish had her hand 
hurt by a window being 
closed on it, and Stephanie 
Valakakis cut her foot on a 
broken perfume bottle. 

"If every individual could 
be trusted, perhaps we 
would open the dorms to a 

panty raid twice a year," 
stated Dean Fulton. He 
promised sterner and more 
effective measures of 
control would be brought 
into play quickly in the 
event of such student beh- 
avior re-occuring on the 
NSC campus. 

In the future, a student 
arrested during a panty raid 
or similiar demonstration is 
likely to be charged under a 
riot act passed by the 1969 
Legislature. Thus, he would 
be subject to a fine of not* 
more than $500 or not more 
than six months impri- 
sonment or both. "The 
threat of injury present in 
these things makes them a 
riot instead of just an 
opportunity to have a good 
time," said Fulton in his 
explanation of the stand.

Student Pay 
Is Increased 

On Feb. 1, 1970 the pay scale for 
student employment on campus will 
increase from $1.30 per hour to $1.45 
per hour, according to Dr. Frank 
Martin, director of the financial Aid 

Therefore, a student will not have 
to work as much for the same 
amount of money. This will de- 
crease the load on the student who 
finds it difficult to work 60 hours a 
week during the five-day school 

Although the state has appro- 
priated less money for student finan- 
cial assistance, the total amount of 
funds available for assistance are 
greater than in the past. 

Many of the loans are based on 
academic excellence, therefore, a 
student may be eligible to work but 
not to borrow. In order to work and 
to receive federal assistance, the stu- 
dent must be eligible under federal 

The amount of federal assistance 
is based on the family income in 
relation to the number of children. 

For example, in a family with a 
$5,000 income and one child the 
parents would be expected to contri- 
bute $528 toward the child's school 
expenses. It is estimated that $1600 
is the required expenditure for a 
year of college. The required excess 
can be awarded in federal funds by 
means of student employment.

A Northwestern student is 
now confined to the Natchi- 
toches Parish jail in connec- 
tion with an alleged attack 
on a Campus Security offi- 
cer on Nov. 4. 

Gerald Davis Head, 22, of 
Shreveport, is being held on 
charges of aggravated bat- 
tery, use of a dangerous wea- 
pon, prowling, resisting ar- 
rest, attempted escape, and 
damage to public property. 
He is to be arraigned some- 
time this week. 

According to the official 
reports filed by the arres- 
ting officers and witnesses 
involved in the incident, 
Campus Security officials 
received a call from Carolyn 
Robicheaux, house director 
of Carondelet Hall, to 
investigate a prowler sbe 
reported hearing outside 
Carondelet. The call came 
in a 1:45 a.m. Tuesday. 

About the same time Mi- 
chael K. Steinkamp and Ja- 
mes E. McAcey, monitors 
spending the night in the 
lobby of Louisiana Hall be- 
cause of a rumored panty 
raid, called Campus Se- 
curity and said they had 
seen someone running be- 
tween Kate Chopin and Lo- 
uisiana Hall. 

Officers Frankie Cut- 
right and Lloyd Cobb an- 
swered the calls, and while 
searching the area Cobb 
spotted a figure dressed 
in black crouching in some 

Cobb got within six to 
eight feet of the suspect 
and according to his report 
said, "I am a officer and 
you are under arrest." At 
this point Head allegedly 
attacked the officer and st- 
ruck him several times 
with a tire tool. Cobb was 
forced to defend himself 
with his nightstick. 

Louisiana Hall in time to 
see the suspect drop his wea- 
pon. Cobb then handcuffed 
his assailant and put him in 
the patrol car. As a result of 
the attack. Officer Cobb, a 
student employe of Campus 
Security, suffered severe 
head lacerations and facial 
cuts and a broken nose. 

Dean Dudley Fulton 
stated that after Head was 
placed in the Natchitoches 
jail he attempted to escape 
by removing the ceiling tile 
and crawling through a sky- 
light. However, he was 
apprehended in the act and 
then charged with attemp- 
ted escape and destruction 
of public property by the 
Natchitoches police. 

Chief James K. Lee of 
Campus Security said that 
earlier during the night o f 
the incident Head had been 
out with some friends and 
had purchased a fifth of 
whiskey. He and his friends 
had changed a flat tire on a 
girl's car in Lot No. 9. 

The lug wrench used was 
left on the floor of the car 
Head was out in that night. 
An investigation revealed it 
was the same one Head 
allegedly attacked the 
officer with. 

According to Chief Lee, 
Head was carrying no 
identification when appre- 
hended. Lee said he has a 
previous police record in! 
Shreveport and bossier City. '

Ten NSC students in the 
School of Business have 
been named to the college's 
Accounting Honors List. 

The Honors program 
in Accounting at North- 
western was established to 
recognize a limited number 
outstanding accounting 

Honor points are awarded 
only for a grade of C or high- 
er, and the students have 
their grades figured for the 
entire time they have been 
in college. The grades are 
computed on a 3.0 basis, 
eliminating any points for 

Dr. Earl Thames, head of 
the Department of Ac- 
counting, said, "We do not 
allow points for all subject 
pursued, only those which 
we consider honor courses. 
The true quality of the hon- 
ors list is evident in that we 
had only 10 students make 
the necessary grades, and 
we have more than 200 ac- 
counting majors." 

The 10 students named to 
the honors list were William

[it was wrong to destroy other people's property and 
steal. I don't think there will be another one for a 
jong time. At least not until the uproar over the 
last one calms down. — Lily Donaldson, Coushatta. 

"The last one wasn't very good. There weren't 
enough people participating."— John Inzer, New 

"I think that panty raids in themselves aren't 
harmful, but when they turn to violence and 
vandalism they become dangerous, and I don't see 
jny point in vandalism. I don't agree with the 
people that say the vandalism was pre-meditated, I 
think the whole thing was spontaneous."— Vicki 
Anderson, Bossier 

"I think it's an excellent way to release pent up 
sexual tensions."— Rob Butler, Minden. 

"I think they are ridiculous. First of all, panties 
$o me no good what so ever. Panty raids also lead 
to other things like vandalism and disturbing the 
peace. I can't see the point. I support the SGA's 
stand."— Brent Gros, Zachary. 

"I wish the girls would co-operate more. They 
should be more liberal."— Bon McGehee, Effie. 

"The only thing I don't like about them is I live on 
the fourth floor."— Beth Oram, Fort Myres, 'Florida. 

I think the school is making to big a 'to do' about 
them. They should let it take its course. I agree 
with the SGA about stopping the vandalism, but I 
don't see anything wrong with a regular panty 
raid."— Joe Renfrow, De Quincy. 

'The last one was totally unsuccessful."— Vic 
Ortiz, Leesville. 

"I support the SGA's stand. I think they are 
right."— Sandra Bethard, Dry Prong. 

"Well, they used to be fun, but now they are 
destructive and the wrong kind of fun. This year 
it's dangerous. It was so different last year."— 
Kathy Warner, Bossier City. 

"It was a waste of time."— Danny Ayala, 

"If the girls woukLhaveTnrown more panties, the 
boys wouldn^-ttave broken into the rooms and 
taken stuff."— Lance Lamdain, Alexandria. 

"It was a lot of fun until they started breaking 
into the girls' rooms."— Danny Palmes Leesville. 

"I don't see much point in them except to have 
fun, and I can think of better ways to have fun. I 
don't see what anyone would get out of destroying 
other people's property. I can't understand their 
motives."— Ginger Thiels, Alexandria. 

"As long as they don't break windows and 
destroy property I think they are all right. I agree 
with the SGA's stand."— Bill Gaines, Bossier City. 

"I like the fun of the panty raids, but the 
vandalism should stop. I think the SGA's stand is a 
little harsh."— Marian D'Amica, Alexandria. 

"I think the panty raids are great, but the boys 
shouldn't be so destructive. I don't agree with the 
le about expelling students for participating in 
anty raids. "---Tim Hayes, Bossier. 

following is the opinion of 
the Northwestern Student 
Court regarding the hearing 
held here Monday after- 
noon. See article on page 


Sudent Union 

The authority to govern 
activities conducted in the Stu- 
dent Union of NSC resides with 
the director of the Student 
Union. The Student Union 
Entertainment Committee acts 
only in an advisory capacity, 
advising the director of the 
Student Union in matters of 
Student Union entertainment. 

The legal authority granted to 
the director of the Student 
Union comes from the Dean of 
Students who in turn gets his 
authority from the President of 
the college. The operation of 
NSC is overseen by the State 
Board of Education, this board 
being responsible to the 
governor of the State of Louisi- 

The Students Court of NSC 
has jurisdiction in this case 
because of the nature of the 
charge brought Mr. Kava- 

The judicial heritage and 
legal structure of the court sys- 
tems of the United States, of 
which this body is a minute 
part, demand the opinions be 
given only in matters speci- 
fically brought before a court. 

In this case, Mr. Kavalawski 
has charged the Student Union 
Entertainment Committee with 
violating his rights as a citizen 
of the United States and a 
student of Northwestern State 
College. The Student Union 
Entertainment Committee did 
not violate any students rights 
by advising the director of the 
Student Union in the case in 
question. Advice does not 
constitute action. 

The director of the Student 
Union, as we have said before, 
is responsible for the activities 
of the college which take place 
in the confines of the Student 
Union. In this instance, the 
director of the Student Union 
decided that continuation of the 
previous Dolicy, with regard to 
StudentUniondances, adversely 
affected the welfare of the 
college community and it was 
with in the scope of his legal 
authority that the policy was 

Pursuing the implications of 
this case, we as a court, find his 
actions entirely consistent with 
the the first paragraph of the 
Code of Conduct of North- 
western State College. 

Insofar as his actions were 
brought before us, it is therefore 
our unanimous opinion that Mr. 
Kavalawski's rights were not 
violated by the actions taken 
against him on the specific 
dates of September 27th and 
October 25th.

Financial Crisis 
Today, Northwestern is in 
s financial crisis. If this 
. Nation is to be alleviated, 
reckoning must come 
D °ut m the citizenry, the 
r°ter s ofLouisian. 
r he administration here 
* s extended its efforts to 
i/^uade the Louisiana 
•■ate Legislature to rectify 
imbalance in state 
di ng of our colleges, but 
*° avail. 
* tn as students must carry 
l ?; Uch larger share of the 
s Uff because of a l ack of 
ucient financial support. 

We are beginning to find 
adverse conditions result- 
ing from this problem: 

1. Professors are leaving 
for greener pastures and 
T3 ay checks. 

2. Scientific, cultural, 
and research programs are 
being restricted. 

3. Library activities are 
curtailed and so are the 
audio-visual aids and other 
instructional materials that 
are vital to many depart- 
ments. These and many 
other handicaps prevent the 
full developments. These 
and many other handicaps 
prevent the full develop- 
ment of skills and talents 
necessary for our continued 
growth as students. 

We must dedicate our- 
selves to influencing the 
voters in our home towns to 
unite and demand that the 
legislature assume their 
proper responsibility to 
resolve this crisis. 

Stadium Dispute 

The State Board of Educa- 
tion recently resolved that 
the NSC stadium was to be 
used only by the college for 
its activities. And the Stu- 
dent Government Associa- 
tion approved of this deci- 
sion because we felt that the 
high school activities tvtkktfL 
a disruptionto the academic 

process of this institution 

It was pointed out that 
there were incidents oi 
unlawful entry into" dormi- 
tory facilities by visiting 
spectators. Also traffic pro- 
blems and congested 
parking facilities are 
created on campus. It was 
mentioned that an excessive 
burden was placed on 
security and maintenance 
personnel of the college. 
And at present the stadium 
is legally accessible to any 
state school upon request. 

For these reasons, devoid 
of discriminatory inten- 
tions, the SGA found it 
necessary to support the 
State Board in the best 
interest of NSC students. 

NEW YORK— For such rea- 
sons as lack of fire-fighting fa- 
cilities, less rigid wiring and 
construction standardsand 
poorer heating equipment, fires 
in rural areas cause three to six 
times more damage on the aver- 
age than fires in the cities, says 
the Insurance Information In- 
stitute. Farm fires caused a re- 
cord $214 million damage in

SGA Resolutions 

WHEREAS the students are con- 
cerned about the future state of this 

That the Student Government 
Association of NSC request that the 
following statement be passed out 
during the Homecoming Activities 
Saturday. November 8. 1969: 

The present and future prosperity 
of Louisiana is in jeopardy. The 
academic capacity which it shares 
with and brings to this proud state 
are being eroded and washed away 
by a severe financial crisis gripping 
and affecting each and all of us. 

While you have the pleasure of wit- 
nessing one of the nation's finest 
football teams, please consider with 
us the tragic plight of our univer- 
sities which have long served the 
people of this state. Because of a 
lack of sufficient financial support 

1. Professors leave for greener 
pastures-or remain, out of love and 
devotion for less pay than they could 
receive at other institutions. 

2. Scientific, cultural, and re- 
search programs that contribute 
directly to the economic well-being 
of the state are restricted or cut. 

3. The library is severely re- 
stricted in the purchasing of books, 
as are departments in securing 
audio-visual aids and other 
necessary instructional materials. 

4. These and many other handi- 
caps prevent the development of 
skills and talents necessary to our 
continued growth and prosperity. 

Because this crisis affects each 
and everyone of us here today, we 
ask each of you to: 

1. Discuss with your friends, 
neighbors, and evervone whom you 

meet, the academic crisis that the 
entire state board system faces 
because of this financial crisis and 
the disaster it is creating. 

2. Together, unite and demand that 
the Legislature and Executives of 
this state assume their proper 
responsibilities to resolve this cri- 

3. That each of you, sacrificially, 
contribute as you can and will. 
DATE: November 3, 1989 
DECISION: Passed Unanimously 


WHEREAS the students are 
concerned about the future state of 
this college 

that the Student Government 
Association of Northwestern State 
College wholeheartedly back the 
stand taken by the State Board of 
Education concerning the use of the 
football stadium situated on the NSC 

Our decision is backed by several 

1. Disruption of academic process. 

2. Unlawful entry into dormitory 
f acilties by visiting spectators. 

3. Initiating of Traffic problems 
and congested parkingfacilities. 

4. Excessive burdening of college 
security and maintenance personnel. 

5. Presently the stadium is legally 
accessible to any state school upon 

This is not done in a discrimina- 
tory manner but in the best interest 
of the students of Northwestern

After all the excitement of now being able to pro- 
duce weekly a paper twice the size of the previous 
issues had faded somewhat, the disturbing thought 
struck me that now we have twice the space to nrr. 
So now as I sit down at my typewriter, to complete 
my last chore for this edition, I'm still contem- 
plating what to expound on this week.

Court Decision 

Monday I atttended the first hearing of the 
semester of the NSC Student Court. The case 
involved a charge brought up by Ken Kavalawski 
concerning the policy of allowing "couples only" to 
attend college dances. Although he lost the case, he 
and his "attorney" did bring up a few good points 
relating to the matter which you won't find in the 
Court's opinion printed on this page. 

Perhaps Kavalawski should have sued the 
Student Union Entertainment Committee for false 
advertising, rather than for violating his rights. 

Forgetting for the moment whether or not the per- 
eon(s) responsible for the policy were legally right 
in setting forth that policy, these dances are adver- 
tised about the campus as "all-college" affairs. 
Even the loosest connotation of "all-college" 
account for the exclusion of some students. ..any 

Kavalawski did point out that there was no pub- 
lic notification of the fact that only couples would 
be allowed to attend at least one of the dances. 

An interesting point taken by the plaintiff during 
Monday's hearing was the request for the clarifi- 
cation of the term "couple," offering the possibili- 
ties of two boys or two girls as fitting into that cate- 

The crux of the argument on Kavalawski's part 
seemed to be that he felt his rights as a student had 
been infringed upon because he helped to pay for 
the dances and other entertainment, yet was not 
allowed to attend unless he had a female com- 
panion. This deserves more than cursory thought. 

Proposed Amendments 

Article VI, Section 7, Sub- 
section A. Membership. 

The voting members of 
the School Spirit Committee 
shall be composed of one 
representative from each 
chartered organization on 
campus. Five cheerleaders 
and five members of the 
pom pon squad shall also 
serve as voting members. 
The chairman shall be 
appointed by the President 
of the Student Government 

* * * 

Aticle X, Section 2, Para- 
graph 2, shall state in part: 

"Scholarship positions on 
the Current Sauce will not 

exceed six full-time scholar- 
ships, including the Editor 
and Business Manager." 

Experience Lack 

Teen drivers need not be 
poor drivers. The National 
Safety Council says it's youth's 
lack of experience that leads to 
errors in judgment. Driver ed- 
ucation courses aid in develop- 
ing judgment and a sense of 
responsibility necessary to safe 
driving. Studies indicate that 
teens who have had formal 
driver education have fewer 
traffic accidents and violations 
than others. 

SPEAKING OUT: David H. Milner 

David Precht Interviews Faculty Member On Education 

This week the Current 
Sauce interviewed one of 
the more outspoken mem- 
bers of the Social Science 
Department, David H. Mi- 

Although a native if the 
North (Grove City, Pa.), 
Milner has spent the past 
10 years in the South, wh- 
ich encompassed all his 
endeavors in higher ed- 
ucation. He attended Fur- 
man University in Green- 
ville, S. C, for two years 
and received his B. A. 
from the University of So- 
uthern Mississippi. He al- 
so gained his M.A. from 
USM in political science, 
and has only his disser- 
tation remaining toward a 
Doctor of Philosophy de- 
gree from LSU. 

Milner began teaching he- 
re last fall, with amies' 
in government, political th- 
eory, and constitutional law 
courses. He is adviser to 
Tri Delta Sigma social 
fraternity and the Politic- 
al Science Society. 

He is married to Paula 
New Milner, and they have 
a son, Eric David. 

In the following inter- 
view, Milner expounds on 
the standards of educat- 
ion specifically at North- 
western, and in Louisiana 
in general. As he puts it, 
he is "Speaking as some- 
one concerned about the 
situation." Here are so- 
me of his remarks. 

Current Sauce -- Do 
you feel that Northwestrn 
students lack interest in 
college affairs! 

Milner — I think there's 
a definite lack of interest 
in student affairs here. 
The majority of the pol- 
iticing is controlled by a 
few groups, namely fra- 
ternities. There is also 
a definite lack of political 
and social consciousness. 
One might relate it to the 
background of NSC stu- 
dents, which is predomin- 
antly rural. 

The situation on cam- 
pus does not compare to 
the student bodies at Be- 
rkely, Harvard, or even 
Tulane and LSU. The ge- 
neral attitude as I see it 
is "I'm going to school 
here for five days a week 

and I'm going to forget 
about it as much as pos- 

Current Sauce — How 
does this relate to cul- 
tural and other influences 
on the student here! 

Milner — There just 
doesn't seem to be enough 
intellectual, artistic ac- 
tivities to get people in- 
volved. For example, wit- 
ness the art displays in 
the Student Union. When- 
ever I pass by there's no 
more than one or two stu- 
dents looking at the dis- 

There seems to be 
a very parochial attitude 
here. Little groups stick 
together. When issues are 
focused on the campus le- 
vel, interest is high, but 
once they touch upon the 
outside world, participa- 
tion declines. 

Current Sauce — You 
mentioned earlier that 
small groups, fraternities 
in particular, were behind 
most of the political ac- 
tivity here. Then again you 
mentioned the little grou- 
ps. How do you feel about 
this activity of the Greeks! 

Milner — While it's true 
that fraternities are be- 
hind this, it is also true 
they represent a small 
minority of the students 
on campus. In the over- 
all scheme of things, th- 
ough, any activity in so- 
cial or political interest 
is a step in the right di- 
rection. A by-product of 
fraternity life is to sit 
down and discuss things 
other than the next, or 
last, party. 

Current Sauce - Isn't 
the Political Science So- 
ciety of which you are a 
sponsor considered one of 
these little groups! 

Milner — Yes. But out- 
side Greeks, those groups 
formed for intellectual dis- 
cussion are tolerated, but 
isolated. One of these is 
the Political Science So- 
ciety. Another thing which 
has hurt intellectual grow- 
th here is the stereotyping 
based on physical appear- 
ance. This is very dang- 
erous. , 

The whole student re- 
volution was spawned by 

this very situation-try- 
ing to really understand 
people as they are. This 
surface analysis is also 
reflected in students' ac- 
ademic work, particular- 
ly in their inability to dis- 
cuss analytically issues 
which have emotional con- 
notations such as war, 
race, the new left, and 
drug use. 

Current Sauce — How do 
you view the future of ed- 
ucational quality here at 

Milner , — One critical 
factor involves expendi- 
tures on higher education. 
Louisiana spends almost 
the least amount of money 
on higher education. 

This is more a reality 
than a prediction: There 
is going to be a possible 
exodus of qualified tea- 
chers and students from 
Louisiana. This is already 
occurring, and unless 
something is done, we will 
again be low man in the 

Current Sauce -- You 
mentioned schools such as 
Berkely, Harvard, Tulane, 
and others where students 
are more politically in- 
volved, and where the stu- 
dent movement is much 
more evident, how do you 
feel toward protest move- 
ments in general! 

Milner — The tendency 
has been distinctly anti- 
intellectual in form and 
substance to consider all 
protest movements wrong. 
That is, there's a tendency 
of uneducated people over 
30 to look upon these kids 
as irresponsible— to feel 
that the younger generat- 
ion has "gone to pot". 
(No pun intended.) 

Current Sauce — Do you 
think students here should 
have more freedoms and 
fewer restrictions! 

Milner — Yes Students 
are no longer wards of the 
school. The college is no 
longer a parent substitute 
—that went out with high- 
button shoes. Students are 
more aware of what goes 
on, but in terms of natio- 
nal standards, Northwes- 
tern is still f ar behind. 
You must give students a 
voice in affairs. 

Current Sauce - Th- 
rough what means* 

Milner — The Soap Box 
Assembly should be an id- 
eal avenue of expression. 
We fought hard to get it, 
and I'm rather disappoin- 
ted in it now. I had anti- 
cipated much more invol- 
vement. Like the United 
Nations, which doesn't fo- 
rce super powers to act 
in a certain way, but can 
be influential. 

Something, I think, is go- 
ing to develop. At least 
students know now that if 
they have any complaints, 
there is a place to air 
them. That wasn't there 

Current Sauce - What 
other means do you see of 
increasing student inte- 
rest or involvement here! 

Milner — Here I think 
you can bring in the spea- 
ker program. Students have 
more to do than go to class 
five days a week. They 
want something to keep th- 
em here. 

Benjamin Spock speak he- 
re! "I'm gonna go burn 
down his hotel room." This 
seems to be the reaction 
you would get from some 
people. Here the chairman 
of the State Board of Ed- 
ucation criticized the pro- 
gram at Tech. I picture 
him saying, "We certain- 
ly don't want students to 
get the wrong ideas." 

Current Sauce — What, 
in your opinion, can be 
done to have a more re- 
sponsive outlook or atti- 
tude on the students' part! 

Milner ~ Most move- 
ments by students are to 
"cleanse" the system. In 
Louisiana there's been a 
definite lack of this mov- 
ement despite the aware- 
ness anyone may have. Mo- 
re students have to start 
challenging these institu- 
tions or the ideals will 
remain the same. , 

As long as the basic at- 
titude of Louisianians re- 
mains the same, the elec- 
torate, the business comm- 
unity, politics, it does not 
look as if the educational 
system here is going to 
be able to function effec-

Demons Set Football Records F 



Lynn Rollins 

After Saturday^ games and the 
cries of "We're number one!" have 
echoed from dozens of college 
campuses, football enthusiasts 
across the nation wait eagerly for 
Monday's or Tuesday's paper to 
find out who is "really" No. 1. 

The Associated Press, United 
Press International, and others all 
take polls to determine a mythical 
champion. But how real are these 
paper champions and how much 
weight does a ranking swing when 
teams of lesser status meet the big 

College coaches across the land 
react in different ways. Some like 
to be on top; .No. 1 billing always 
brings with it 'inches and inches of 
publicity. Others feel the 
UndKrdog position instills a 
determination in their players to 
prove the "experts" wrong and 
knock off a team that is favored to 

Polls are good for football. 
There is no doubt that they 
generate interest and provide 
incentive for grid squads. 
However, what kind of incentive 
do they make? 

Take the case of Notre Dame. 
Perennially a power with high 
rankings, the Fighting Irish 
willingly schedule and slaughter 
opponents that couldn't rank No. 1 
in the YMCA grade-school football 

Notre Dame has on this year's 
slate such power-houses as North- 
western (111.), Tuland, Navy, Pitts- 
burgh, Ga. Tech, and Air Force. 
With a mediocre team the Irish 
should still go 6-4. And whats 
more, the first string just happens 
to play most of the game, running 
up scores of 60 and 70 to nothing. 

Now don't get it wrong. The 
Irish are certainly not the only 
team to practice such flashy shows 
of "power." It's just that they are 
worshipped as being almost a pro 
team in college because they 
massacre teams that aren't in their 
caliber. People seem to remember 
the high scores but not who the 
opposition is. 

Another area that "poll fever" is 
discrediting is the value of the con- 
ference championship. Think 
what the Southeastern Conference 
title means now in relationship to 
a national ranking. The SEC 
probably the finest conference in 

the country, now can be won by 
teams playing only five con- 
ference games and those can be the 
lesser teams. 

But instead of playing inside the 
conference and fghting for the 
championship, coaches are 
scheduling wins for recognition. 
Think what a great schedule the 
SEC teams would have if they all 
played each other. 

Finally polls are many times the 
result of voting personnel that 
haven't even seen some of th£ 
teams they are voting for in action. 
Word of mouth and that big score 
in Sunday's newspapers are the 
guides for many pollsters. 

Northwestern was picked to 
finish last in the GSC this year and 
some even went so far as to say 
that the Demons would be winless. 
Coach Gossett is probably 
thanking the pollsters for that 
decision because it gives a little 
more fire to the players to prove 
the "experts" wrong. 

This Week's Forecast 

After a two-week layoff (boy I'm 
glad because who ever thought La. 
Tech would lose and the Saint's 
would win) I'm ready to get back to 
the winning ways. 

Oh, by the way, just in case you 
forgot, I managed to select eight 
out of eight the last time out. That 
brings the season record up to 30 
right, eight wrong, for a .789 

Watch out Dunkel!

Mike Pool had his best game of

Records set in football 
are made to be broken 
— and the Demons of No- 
rthwestern have put nine 
school standards on the 
books this fall. 

Coach Glenn Gossett's 
club was picked to finish 
last in the Gulf States Con- 
ference in a pre-season 
poll but the Demons are 
currently tied for second 
place with a 2-1 mark. 
Overall, NSC has a 5-2 
slate and is assured of a 
winning season with only 
two games remaining. In 

of its home games and lost 
only an opening game to 
Florence State and to power- 
ful Louisiana Tech. The 
Demons also bested Ten- 
nessee Tech on the road for 
their other victory. By 
claiming a thrilling 29-28 
victory over McNeese last 
Saturday, the Demons de- 
lighted a crowd of 9,500— 
largest throng of the season 
at Demon Stadium— with a 
sweet homecoming win.

primed as an ail-American 
candidate, has decided to

NSC Audience Approves Of 
The Season's Performance 

By Gary Estess 

Wednesday, Nov. 5, was a 
clear, cold night in 
Demonland. Across the 
campus could be heard 
faintly the sounds of 
"Sherry" "You're Just Too 
Good to be True" and other 
hits as the Four Seasons 
played to the largest crowd 
to attend the student enter- 
tainment this fall. The 
four minstrels from New 
Jersey received many 
standing ovations as they 
held the audience spell- 
bound with their own 
special brand of music 
which for the past nine 
years has sent them soaring 
in popularity. This brand of 
music has also captured the 
hearts of many fans as they 
have played before college 
and nightclub audiences 
across the country. 

A catalog of adjectives 
springs to mind in des- 
cribing the Four Seasons. 
Youthful, buoyant, bright, 
and gifted are just a few 
quick word associations for 
the group. Yet, the secret of 
success lies in their ability 
to understand music and 
each other. Each of the 
Season's four membera 
contributes his individual 
musical talent to produce 
the group's melodious mes- 
sage. Frankie Valli is 
serious toward his work and 
strives to please the audi- 
ences he performs before 
and the public with his 
personable style. The 
light-hearted humor of 
Tommy DeVito keeps the 
mood of the Four Seasons. 

Jo Lang, with 12 
years of musical studies and 
a desire to excel in pro- 
ducing hit tunes, directs the 
Four Season's Band. Quiet 
Bob Gaudino writes most of 
the songs for the group. His 
fertile pen has produced 
many of their greatest hits 
including their first big hit 
in 1960 "Sherry." Frank 
Sinatra recently decided to 
use Bob's songs in a forth- 
coming album. Talent and 
personality are evident fea- 
tures as one looks at the 
Four Seasons both as a 
group and as individuals. 

To really understand 
these talented musicians 
one must look backstage to 
see for himself what makes 
the Four Season! a con- 
sistant recording 
group. As they sat ex- 
hausted in a cold dressing 

room after the NSC per- 
formance, the Four Seasons 
talked about their success in 
the recording industry and 
about the college audiences 
they play before while on 

Season Bob Gaudio 
prefers collegiate audiences 
because "they are more 
attentive and seem to take 
the lyrics seriously." 
Southern audiences im- 
pressed Joe as being quieter 
than their Northern counter- 
parts. When asked about 
his favorite song of all their 
hits, Frankie Valli replied, 
"I think it would have to be 
'Sherry' because it was a be- 
ginning." Speaking of 
their success Tommy said 
"It's up to the individual to 
make his own breaks. To 
get ahead in the recording 

Gregg- Smith Singers Appear At NSC 

The Gregg-Smith Singers, 
one of America's most dis- 
tinguished choral 
ensembles, appeared at 
Northwestern State College 
in concert at 8 o'clock Nov. 
1 1 in the Fine Arts 

The group's concert 
opened the 1969 season for 
the Northwestern-Nat- 
chitoches Concert Assoc- 
iation, according to John 
LeBlanc, Association 
chairman and member of 
the NSC music faculty. 

The Gregg-Smith Singers, 
directed by Gregg Smith, 
are currently making their 
third 10-week tour of the 
United States and Europe, 
where they will appear in 50 

The Gregg-Smith Singers 
are known for their 
sound". ..a sound dis- 
tinguished even when they 
perform their repertoire of 
Renaissance, classical and 
American folk music. 

Concerts by the group 
have been termed "unique" 
by many. One very obvious 
unique quality occurs when 
members of the 25-man 
group scatter throughout 
the auditorium, singing 
from the balcony, the stage 

and even the audience. This 
scattering technique 
provides a truer rendition of 
Renaissance music. 

The Gregg-Smith Singers 
is a young group with the 
age average ranging from 
25 and 26. Everyone of the 
singers is a graduate of 
music from universities and 
colleges in Southern Cali- 
fornia, and a professional 
musician with many of the 
group's singers doubling as

'Wedding Bell Blues' Is 
No. 1 Again This Week 


industry the group has to 
have talent and must be able 
to get along with each other. 
Most of all they have to put 
feeling into their 
music." The day after their 

appearance here, the Four 
Seasons were winging their 
way toward Memphis, Tenn. 
to put on a show there and 
then to Alabama for a per- 
formance at Auburn Univer- 
sity. After another month 
on tour the group returns to 
Los Angeles to start work 
on a new album. This new 
album will be one more to 
add to the ever-growing list 
of hits. Such is the life of 
four musicians who make 
every season special as they 
sprinkle each one with 
showers of verse and music 
to nourish their growing 
garden of fans.

Heading the Top Twenty Survey for the third week in a 
row is "Wedding Bell Blues" by the Fifth Dimension. The 
Second and third places are held by the Beatles with two 
selections from their new album Abby Road. "Come 
Together " rose from the number eight position to take 
the number two spot this week while "Something in the 
Way She Moves" slipped from the number two to the num- 
ber three spot on the survey. Rising fast from the bot- 
tom of the list are two songs by the Creedence Clearwater 
Revival. "Fortunate Son," formally in the number 28 
spot, made a spectacular jump to the number 17 spot this 
week with "Down On the Corner," also by Creedence, hot 
on its trail taking the number 18 spot. The Archies still 
have a big hit on their hands with their song "Sugar, Sug- 
ar." Popular since this summer i "Sugar "Sugar, " is still 
holding on but has dropped on the survey since last 
week. Some of the songs rising on the survey are 
"Down on the Corner" by the Creedence Clearwater 
Revival; Eli's Coming" by the Three Dog Night; "Take a 
Letter Maria" by R.B. Greaves; "Try a Little Kindness" 
by Glenn Campbell; and "Fortunate Son" by Creedence 
Clearwater Revival. "Suspicious Minds" by Elvis; 
"Tracy" by the Cuff Links; "Is That All There Is?" by 
Peggy Lee; and "Something in the Way She Moves" by 
the Beatles dropped on this week's survey. "Wedding 
Bell Blues" by the Temptations; "Smile a Little Smile for 
Me" by the Flying Machine; "Ball of Fire" by Tommy 
James and the Shondells; and "You've Lost That Loving 
Feeling" by Dionne Warwick remained in the same spot 
on the survey. 

(Editor's Note -- The number at the end of each song is the 
rating of that song on last week's survey.) 

Larry McKenzie -- Business Manager 

The person who fills up 
space that reporters and edi- 
tors can-not fill up with fea- 
tures, news stories, or other 
miscellaneous print is 
usually the most important 
around many newspapers. 
In the case of The Current 
Sauce that person happens 
to be our business manager, 
Larry Wayne McKenzie. 

Larry, who will turn 21 
Friday, is a junior this year 
and is majoring in business 
administration. He gradu- 
ated from Homer High 
School in Homer and at- 
tended Tech for a year and 
a half before enrolling at 
NSC. The reason he gave 
for this action was that he 
became bored. 

Larry is a member of Sig- 
ma Tau Gamma social 
fraternity and is chair- 
man and vice president of 

Red, GTO'sAiidMcKuen Are 
Saundra Chance's First Loves 

membership of that organi- 
zation. He became business 
manager of The Current 
Sauce this semester, taking 
the place of Alvin Savoie 
who graduated last Spring. 

Although he will graduate 
next fall, Larry says that he 
hasn't thought about what 
he will do when he gets out 
of school. He admitted that 
his pet peeve is people who 
have closed minds and are 
unable to see both sides of 
an issue. 

Larry gives cars a hard 
time, likes water skiing, and 
like most normal boys he 
takes more than an ordinary 
interest in pretty girls. 

Larry, born in Minden, is 
the son of Mr. and Mrs. 
Lloyd L. McKenzie of Hom- 
er. He has one brother Ron- 
nie who is 15 and attends 
Homer High School.

McKuen has never felt any- 
thing in his life that I've 
never felt, I don't think. His 
feelings, thoughts, and do- 
ings aren't exceptional. 
What is, though is his abil- 
ity to put it on pap- 
er. "These are the words 
of Saundra Chance, busi- 
ness manager of the 1970 
and soul are her three other 
first loves. Saundra, a 
senior business education 
major from Hornbeck, first 
discovered Rod McKuen in 
the spring of 1968. A 
volume of his contemporary 
love poems, Listen To 
The Warm, was given to her 
by a Moslem Turk, as a 
momento of a recent visit 
from Chicago. Since then 
she has collected both of 
Rod's other works, Stanyon 
Street And Other Sorrows 
and Lonesome Cities. Of 
her friend from Chicago, 
Saundra said, "Getting to 
know him was a cultural 
experience." About Rod 
McKuen her comment was, 
"It's so great to be living in 
the same age as Rod. If I 
could meet and get to know 
anyone in the world, I'd like 
for it to be him." Following 
graduation in May, 
Saundra plans to., work a 
short while at Western Elec- 
tric in Shreveport, where 
she was employed on the 
night shift last sum- 
mer. "I can't be brief!" she 
lamented, as she tried to 
sum up her feelings about 
the summer. Then, "My 
summer at Western was 
really educational. I had an 
opportunity to meet people 
from almost every aspect of 
life, and in the short time I 
worked there these people 
came to mean more to me 
and to teach me more about 
living than anyone I'd ever 

In August she will 
be Colorado-bound, where 
her first objective will be a 
red GTO. "Red has always 
been my favorite color. It's 
reality; it's unashamed," 
Saundra commented. "Pink 
is nauseating; it's afraid to 
come out and be what it real- 
ly is: RED! Red vibrates 
with life and enthusiasm." 
She continued that, like a 
tree in winter with the 
branches starkly against 
the sky, red is there and you 
must accept it for what it 

Isaac Hayes' album 
"Hot Buttered Soul" tops the 
list of Saundra's latest pur- 
chases. When asked what 
makes Isaac so special to 
her, she paused thought- 
fully for a second, then 
spoke: "It's soul, and I love 
that. But Isaac is just as 
good as his word— it's hot 
and buttered. If anyone lis- 
tens to his song, 
dalymistic,' they'll just 
have to know what I

Although she will 
be certified to teach busi- 
ness subjects, she has not 
decided definitely to make 
teaching her profession. If 
student teaching does not 
improve her desire to teach, 
she may return to secre- 
tarial work, which she did 
for a year at Hornbeck High 
School before entering col- 

Her duties at the 
POTPOURRI office, added 
to schoolwork, often lead to 
long days for Saundra. 
However, she can always 
find time for a few lines of 
Rod McKuen, some strains 
of Isaac Hayes, or another 
short vision of that red GTO 
with the Colorado license 
plate. After all, that's what 
living is all about when 
you're Saundra Chance.

at the home of Mr. Chin, our 
fraternity advisor. Plans 
are now being made for the 
fraternity to journey to USL 
to see the Demons battle the 
Ragin' Cajuns at Lafayette. 

We would like to com- 
mend some of our brothers 
for their active partici- 
pation at NSC. This year 
brother Garland Riddle has 
been elected president of the 
NSC Student Union and 
brother Gary Digilormo 
also serves as an SGA repre- 
sentative on the Student 
Union Governing Board. 

Brothers Rick Merchant, 
Jack Bond, and pledge 
brother Paul Bennett are 
chairmen of three of the five 
Student Union Committees. 
Pledge brother Tim Gayle 
had the lead in the speech 
department's production, 
"The Fantastics", and has 
also been selected as an 
SGA Freshman Associate.

Sigma Tau began 
celebrating Homecoming on 
Thursday afternoon and 
night with a Keg Party. The 
pledge class had their keg 
party Friday night. Satur- 
day the brothers had an 
open house for all returning 
Sig Tau Alumni from 11:00 
a.m. to 1:00 p.m. A buffet 
lunch was served for all 
who attended. Everyone 
then left the frat house and 
went to the game. The men 
of Sigma Tau decided to 

help those who are less 
fortunate than us this year 
at Homecoming by donating 
the $100 that has always 
been spent on Homecoming 
displays to the Natchitoches 
Mental Health Association. 
We hope to make an annual 
contribution to this fine 

Halloween night the 
brothers of Sigma Tau 
donned costumes and held a 
Spook Night Party for 
approximately 500 Natchi- 
toches trick or treaters. The 
little goblins were enter- 
tained by clowns, vampires, 
witches, Idians, and a 
hunchback. They were also 
given candy and ''witch's 
brew" while their parents 
were viewing the spacious 
house the fraternity has pur- 
chased as living 
quarters. In the recent 
weeks Sig Tau has added to 
its pledge Roster the fol- 
lowing boys: Mike Price; 
Bobby Joe Clark; L. A. 
Smith; and Doug Revet. 


Kappa Sigma took second 
place last week when they 
lost the championship to the 
Holly Rocks. The game was 
scoreless when time ran out 
and the Victory went to the 
team with the most pene- 
tration. The Sigs did 
manage to place first in the 
Fraternity League. 

Plans for the future 
include supporting the 
Demons this weekend when 
they go up against USL.

"Happy 21 st Birthday, Johnny" 

At least, we hope it's happy, Johnny's strung out on "speed," 
and most people take him for about 35. He's shooting "meth," now, 
but he started on pills: "dexies," "bennies." He has to use a little more 
each day to maintain the "high" and avoid "crashing." It's as though 
he were a car that's raced its motor continuously for a year. No won- 
der he looks like he's ready for a 50,000 mile overhaul. 

You see, on "speed," you don't eat, you don't sleep, you don't 

feel you have to pay any attention to your health . . . because you feel 
so "up" all the time. 

So while you're "up" on speed, your body runs down. Johnny 
raps all the time about how, since he's started "speeding," he's really 
living. At this rate, he may have lived his life before he reaches 22.

ship in the Alumni Asso- 
ciation is one of the highest 
awards presented by NorthT

fourth given during Kil- 
patrick's four years as the 
college's chief executive. 

During a brief address, 



Kilpatrick praised Noe for 
his distinguished and long 
service to Louisiana. He 
cited numerous areas of 
civic contributions and also 
thanked the former gover- 
nor for his outstanding ser- 
vice to education in the state. 

Alpha Beta Alpha Installs 
New Members Into Club 

Five students have been 
initiated into membership 
and five others accepted as 
pledges in the Northwestern 
State College chapter of 
Alpha Beta Alpha, national 
library science fraternity. 

Newly-initiated active 
members of the 

organization are Sharon

Louisiana. He is presently 
chairman of the board of

Noe was elected to the 
State Senate in 1932. He 
became President Pro Tem 
of the Senate and was ele- 
vated to the post of governor 
following the death of O. K. 
Allen in 1936. 

When his term as gover- 
nor ended, Noe sought and 
won reelection as State 
Senator. It was Noe, who, in 
1938, introduced and suc- 
ceeded in having passed a 
bill that provided for United 
States flags to be displayed 
in all public schools in 

Noe's civic service has 
been widely recognized. He 
dedicated an elaborate 
$100,000 color fall fountain 
at the Monroe Civic Center

the outside mall in the com- 
plex is named in his honor. 

The David C. Silverstein

sented to Noe last year by 
the Monroe Chamber of 
Commerce in recognition of 
his outstanding civic contri-

Ledet Lists 



Registrar Walter Ledet 
announced this week that 
the system for pre-regis- 
tration has been altered this 
fall, and advises students to 
take note of the changes list- 
ed below. 

Trial schedule cards will 
be given to each student 
attending Northwestern du- 
ring pre-registration. This 
applies to all students, 
including those who do not 
intend to be enrolled here 
next spring. 

The trial schedule ards 
must have all the .nfor- 
mation relating t each 
course a studer « adules, 
including the section num- 
ber, instructor room, and 
time. This information 
must be written in pencil. 

Advisers of students 
holding work scholarships 
will indicate any inflexible 
working schedule. 

Scheduling time for meals 
must be the responsibility 
of the student, according to 

The adviser or a repre- 
sentative of his department 
must sign the trial schedule 
card or the student will not 
be allowed to register. 

During pre-registration, 
all students will receive an 
official verification data 
sheet. The student should 
make any corrections neces- 
sary on the official verifica- 
tion data sheet so that all the 
information will be correct. 

These data sheets are 8Va

the computer center where 
they are kept on file. After 
correcting the information 
>n the sheet, it should be gi- 
ven to the student's adviser. 

This program, which 
began in 1964, was financed 
by the Ford Foundation "to

What Do You Think 

By Niva Chavez 

The recent moratorium has been a major topic of 
discussion on college campuses throughout the 
country. Northwestern students expressed the foll- 
owing opinions: 

"I don't support the moratorium. It gives the Com- 
munists more incentive, because they think we are 
split. It weakens our power in the peace talks. I 
think we should back our President."— Ted Sander- 
Un, Jonesborougn Hodge. 

"I don't suppor* the moratorium. I think we 
should back the President because he is our lead- 
er."— Clay Clark, Loj ansport. 

"I think the war should be ended by a full military 
effort. I'm against the moratorium."— Mark 
Rambin, Mansfield. 

"No, I don't support the moratorium. I will be 
glad when the war in Vietnam is over, but while our 
boys are helping to defend South Vietnam I don't 
feel that ; t is right to openly tear down what they 
are working so hard to build up."— Linda Jarred, 

"I am agairst the moratorium. I feel that the 
majority of the students that participate do not real- 
ize the consequences which could result if we had a 
a total withdrawal now. It would result in the 
taking-over of Southeast Asia by the Com- 
munists."— Ronald Brousard, Alexandria. 

"I do not support the moratorium because some 
of the larger ones are Communist conspired and the 
ones we have don't accomplish a thing."— Robert 
Dale, Alexandria. 

'"I don't support the moratorium. I think it is 
used for the wrong purpose. Some people are real- 
ly earnest in their belief, but most of the people are 
just out there to show off."— Dale Habert, Forest 

"I'm against the demonstrations, because they 
are unnecessary. The problem is going to be solv- 
ed. It's left up to the Senate and the House, not us."— 
-Terry O'Quinn, Bossier City. 

"I think they (our men in Vietnam) should knock 
the hell out of them and then pull out. As for the 
moratorium, I may not agree with the demon- 
strators way of doing things, but I respect the peo- 
ple that care enough to express their opinions."— 
Pat Gilmore, Lake Charles. 

"I don't support it. I think that in view of what is 
going on President Nixon is doing the best he can. I 
think the people are pulling this a little out of pro- 
portion."— Sam Spivey, Shreveport. 

"I don't support the moratorium. I think that any- 
one who is with the moratorium is professing ot be 
a coward. Our government needs all the people be- 
hind it. Without it there isn't much of a democracy 
left."— Dennis Bozeman, Pineville. 

"I support it, as opposed to some of the more vio- 
lent means of protesting."— Wendell Johnson, 
Baton Rouge. 

"I'm for the peaceful demonstrators, because at 
least they show they give a damn. They don't riot, 
but just show the public how they feel."— Paula 
Fleming, Lake Charles. 

"I support the moratorium. I feel that the loss of 
life in Vietnam, is useless. We shouldn't be made 
to do for them what they can do for themselves."— 
Margaret Rains, Mansfield. 

"I support it in principle, yes. I can understand 
the point of view supporting the President, but I 
feel that the administration should get a little pres-. 
sure to pull out of Vietnam from the public if tlrat is 
their feelings. This would motivate the adminis- 
tration to leave. The moratorium serves a definite 
and good function in our system. While I don't sup- 
port them to the letter, I *eel that they are doing the 
country good."— Joseph P. Beckll, Washington D.C. 

"I think we have to stand behind our government. 
I don't like the war in Vietnam and I'm not in favor 
or of it, but all we can do is support our government 
and it's policies. The President and the adminis- 
tration are the people who are going to get us out of 
of this hassel. No one wants war, but all we can do 
is back our government and its policies."— Eliza- 
beth Wentzel, Boston, Mass. 

"I don't support the moratorium. I believe every- 
one should support their country, because if it 
weren't for that we wouldn't be where we are to- 
day."— Herbert Walter Way, Alexandria. 

"I support the people who are fighting against 
the moratorium. It is useless and expresses the 
Communist's opinion towards the war. I hope that 
we keep up fighting for our rights and freedom."— 
Kay Frost, Shreveport. 

"I don't support the moratorium. I'm totally 
against it. We ought to get out of Vietnam, but we 
we should win the war first. If we leave without set- 
tling on peaceful terms the war will just spread and 
eventually come here. I don't think they should 
fight the way they are fighting now. They should 
fight to win the war and quit fooling around."Grov- 
erDavis, Forest Hill.

The AMS Report 

By Bill Thrash 
AMS Vice President 

Last Friday the AMS and AWS jointly sponsored 
a "Show Your Colors" day where the students and 
faculty of NSC were asked to wear the red, white, 
and blue ribbons symbolic of the United States' 
national colors. 

A table was set up in the Student Union at 8 Fri- 
day morning where both armbands and ribbons 
were distributed until 4 that afternoon. At that 
time, the ribbons were taken to the dining halls for 

Aimed at showing the support the students have 
for the U.S. policy, particularly in the Vietnam 
War, the total operation was deemed a great suc- 
cess as over a thousand ribbons were passed out. 
This was in contrast to the various antiwar demon- 
strations held on many campuses across the nation 
on that day. 

On behalf of the AMS and AWS officers, I would 
like to thank all the students and faculty that 
participated in the "colors" day for helping make it 
a success. The fact that it was a success is a credit 
to the students of NSC. 

In a time of student disrupt and unrest across the 
nation, it is pleasing and gratifying to know that 
the majority of students at this southern campus 
have a high standard of values in the sense that 
they will not allow themselves to be swayed and 
used at the direction of minority rebels. 

As I See It..

working on your home-

A Look At SG A 


Dear Editor, 

As a concerned citizen, if I 
might be permitted to make 
some comments on the acti- 
vities which occurred on 
this campus during the 
recent moratorium demon- 
stration, particularly on 
Nov. 14. 

To witness so many stu- 
dents showing concern over 
one of the great problems 
facing this country gave me 
great pleasure. However, 
many of the students were 
defeating their own pur- 
pose, support of their presi- 
dent, by wearing the red, 
white, and blue arm bands, 
in a misleading manner. 

I mean to say that if a flag 
is displayed with the stars 
and blue background down, 
the action is recognized as 
being a signal of distress. 
The same goes for dis- 
playing colors to represent 
the flag or the U . S . 

Many students who wore 

the colored arm bands for 
precisely that reason were 
wearing them with the red 
up, and the blue down indi- 
cating a time or situation of 
distress. Don't misunder- 
stand my intentions, it 
pleased me immensely to 
see so many of our students 
pleadi. 3 their cause, both 
pro and con, and involving 
themselves with something 
other than homework, or 
who to date next, it brought 
sorrow to my heart to see 
so 1 many mislead about 
their cause. 

Although I was impressed 
to see the AMS and AWS 
come out full force to show 
their support of their 
government, I do believe, 
that if AMS and AWS funds 
were used for the pur- 
chasing the materials used 
in this demonstration, then 
articles representing both 
sides of this issue should 
have been provided, because

Respectfully submitted, 
Susan Nickerson, Secre- 

Student Government Asso- 

To deal effectively with 
the matters of student af- 
fairs is the goal of the Stu- 
dent Government Associa- 
tion. As problems confront 
us as students, practical 
solutions must be presented 
to smooth out the conflicts. 

We must realize that a pro- 
blem for one student may 
not be of concern to another, 
or it might even be a delight 
to still another. 

But a problem is a pro- 
blem—it's either black or 
white, very little gray these 
days. Therefore, a great 
deal of care must be taken in 
working with a trouble area. 

In order to be an aggres- ' 
sive legislative body, the 
SGA must be encouraged to- 
ward the right direction to 
respond appropriately to 
the student pulse, as well as 
being sensitive to the chan- 
ging needs and being intui- 
tive of future needs. 

It is easier to sense the 
noisy minority than it is to 
find the proper perspective 
in serving the silent ma- 
jority. I find it necessary to 
remind myself of this (in the 
best interest of the Student 
Body) as I seek to improve 
the student welfare of the 
NSC campus. 

the organizations represent 
all undergrad students 
and fees were collected 
from, for the most part, all 
undergrad stu dents. 

In closing I would like to 
say, that in my opinion, if 
more students take a greater 
interest in situations con- 
cerning them not just as a 
sutdent, but also in matters 
of citizenship both locally 
and nationally, then this 
institution shall continue on 
its slow road to achieving 
full status as a college, an 
institution of higher learn- 
ing, learning of all things 

Incidentally there is a 
crisis in this state over 
higher education. Please, 
everyone, for the sake of not 
only yourselves but those 
who will come after you, 
find out about it, discuss it 
and help do something to 
alleviate the situation. 

Ken Kavalawski

The SGA has the respon- 
sibility of directing the in- 
fluence of the students in 
regulation of their welfare. 
The SGA has as its duty to 
lead—with firm, direct, and 
aggressive leadership. 

As a student reform is 
born in the mind of an indi- 
vidual or a group of indivi- 
duals, it should then be 
aired before the SGA, so 
that it can be researched or 
processed through the pro- 
per channels in order to re- 
solve the contention. This 
part of the democratic pro- 
cess we have agreed to when 
we chose to attend North- 
western- -or any other col- 

Although many services 
are offered by the SGA that 
the Student does not re- 
quest, it is my hope that 
each student will take the 
opportunity to effectively 
use the resources of SGA as 
long as he is a citizen of 
this campus. With the sup- 
port of the Student Body and 
its encouragement, almost 
all things are possible in 
light of the academic pro- 

Student Government here 
would at all times like to re- 
main open to the needs of 
the student. I would like to 
introduce those persons 
who are leading the major 
areas of concern for this 
school year. On the oppo- 
site page you will find a list 
of the committees and the 
respective chairmen and 
their phone numbers. 

Please clip that listing so 
that you can readily refer 
your need to the proper 
channel. Encourage the 
proper handling of you 

If you are persistent, two 
things can happen: (1) you 
may receive an answer to 
your questions, which will 
keep the fires of interest kin- 
dled, or (2) it will reveal 
those inefficient leaders 
who need to be awakened or 
replaced. This goes for the 
faculty as well as the stu-

Another Hour, Maybe? 

Let me first commend all those responsible for 
the recent extension of curfew hours for NSC coeds. 
We're certainly not foremost in this area compared 
to some other state schools, yet we're still ahead of 
many others. 

But,-and I guess this supports the argument that 
people can never be satisfied— how about one more 
hour added to the dating period on Fridays? This 
topic was recently discussed (not at length) in one 
of the past SGA meetings. AWS President Lynda 
Henderson stated that before anything could be 
done, someone would have to go through the proper 
channels and prove a need for the extended hour. 

The "need" is explained more or less through 
logic. Girls can stay out on Saturday nights until 1 
a.m. This is logical because they don't have classes 
on Sunday. Therefore, when classes aren't held 
regularly on any given day, it would seem that the 
curfew for women on the preceding night should be 
1 a.m. also. 

This is true of Friday nights after this year wit- 
nessed the abolishment of Saturday classes foi 
undergraduates. Consequently, the curfew^ houi 
should be extended from midnight to 1 a.m. 

I feel somewhat like the teenager who, in arguing 
for more freedoms from his parents, says "But 
everybody else is doing it!" Nevertheless, Every- 
one else is doing it. 

David Morgan, vice president of the Freshman 
Class, who initiated the idea in SGA, reported that 
of every school represented at the Beginners' Work- 
shop at Southeastern which he attended, only 
Northwestern had a midnight date night on Fridays. 

Other state schools, including Tech, Northeast, 
Southwestern, Southeastern, and of course, LSU, 
all have later curfew hours on Friday evenings 
than Northwestern. Were I a girl (Heaven forbid), 
and had this fact to ponder over in selecting a col- 
lege to attend, I would undoubtedly select a more 
liberally regulated institution. 
A silly question to ask now would be "Why an., 
extra hour?" So, my silly answer is, "Why not?" 

ror What It's Worth 

By Alan Theriault 
This year, the state of 
Louisiana is facing perhaps 
the greatest education crisis 
in its history. Funds are so 
scarce here that much of the 
printing in some depart- 
ments is now done on the 
backs of previously used 

Entrance requirements 
may soon have to be used as 
well as more strict regu- 
lations concerning off-cam- 
pus living. Teachers are lea- 
ving for "greener pastures," 
and students are being 
deprived of the highest 
possible education that the 
state of Louisiana can 

This state incidentally, 
has the highest illiteracy 
rate in the United States, 
probably because it has the 
lowest per capita rate of aid 
to education in the nation. 

What, then, is the answer? 
What can be done to end this 
education drain? My ans- 
wer is taxes. Yes, Taxes! 
The one word that every- 
body dislikes, yet is the one 
which can do so much more 
to benefit the people than 
they realize. 

Last year, if I'm not mis- 
taken, the State Legislature 

defeated some of Governor 
McKeithen's tax programs. 
What was the reason for this 
action? Is it that the people 
do not want a better system 
of education for their child- 
ren, better roads, and other 
programs? I think they do." 
After all, this is supposed to 
be a government by the 
DeoDle and for the people. 
An increase of 1 percent 

state sales tax, along with 
possibly small increases of 
taxes on gasoline and ciga- 
rettes can add millions of 
dollars to the state's re- 
venue each year. New York, 
for example, has a 3 percent 
state sales tax, while its citi- 
zens pay an average of 42 
cents per gallon of 
gasoline and 40-50 cents for 
a package of cigarettes. 

The people of Louisiana 
should voice their opinion 
by writing to their legis- 
lators—which in many in- 
stances is the only method 
of letting the politicians in 
Baton Rouge know of the 
wishes of the people. 

Perhaps then the students 
of Louisiana will have the 
opportunity to receive the 
quality of education they 
rightly deserve. 

SPEAKING OUT: Charles R . Olson 

English Professor Raps With Lynn Rollins On NSC 

Charles R. Olson, Northwestern English professor, was the 
subject ot the Current Sauce's "Speaking Out" column in its 
second week of existence. 

Olson, 36, is a native of Moorhead, Minn., where he attended 
and received his B.A. and M.S. degrees from Moorhead State 
College. After graduation he traveled to Istanbul, Turkey and 
taught English at Robert College for three years. 

Olson returned to the States and taught at Ohio State as a 
graduate assistant whiie getting his M.A. He also did 
doctoral work and needs only to complete his dissertation to 
receive his doctorate in English. 

While in Turkey, Olson met Pearl Little, whom he later mar- 
ried. They have two children, a son, 9, and a daughter, 3. 

Olson started teaching at Northwestern in the fall semester 
ot 1968. 

Current Sauce--Based on your past experiences in teaching 
at other colleges and your work in Turkey and travels across 
Europe and the nation, how do you rate Northwestern as a col- 
lege educationally? 

Ol8on-That'8 a very difficult question to answer. There 
are, of course, variations in departments. The Language 
Department has some signal weaknesses. For one thing we 
don't have a drama man, something I think the department 
should have. But we are improving. 

Over all, it is pretty easy for students to get through school. 
This is partially due to the lack of admission standards. With 
no standards, the entire average is lowered and most teachers 
aim their courses at the average. 

Maybe the Language Department hasn't been doing its job 
in preparing freshmen English students. I think a college stu- 
dent should at least be able to manipulate his native tongue. 
Freshman and sophomore level courses, to a certain extent, 
should be flunk-out courses, I suppose. 

Current Sauee--Much has been said about the lackadaisical 
attitude of students here. To what degree of seriousness do 
you think such a problem exists? 

Olson-I'd wager that there is not an institution in the coun- 
try where people do not complain of student apathy. In North- 
western's case I think part of the problem lies with the stu- 
dent's interest in his immediate area and nowhere else. The 
attitude is provencial with the thought that his is "God's 
Country" and the rest of the world is there but not to be ex- 

Current Sauce-Do you think a Southern heritage contri- 
butes to these attitudes? 

Olson- Yes, partially. I've' been able to understand the clos- 
er kinship with the land. It is a comfortable, benign land that 
offers no physical struggles. In the Midwest there is always 
that flat barren land that is covered with three feet of sr-^w 

and subzero temperatures in the winter and living there be- 
comes something of a physical problem. 

The Southern historical background lends itself to the stu- 
dent's thinking, too. It gives them a solemn attitude. I'm not 
sure I like it yet, but I'm willing to stay and find out. 

Perhaps students are the product of the social, political, and 
religious conservatism that prevails. 

Current Sauce--How did you hear about NSC and apply for 
a job? 

Olson— I'd never heard of Northwestern or Natchitoches un- 
til Dr. Walter Mosely (head of the Language Department) got 
my name at a convention and asked me to apply. 

I'd never lived in the South and didn't know what a small 
Southern town would be like to live in so I just said to myself, 
"Why not?" Maybe I'll learn someting here. It's not 
cosmopolitan like other small U.S. towns. 

Current Sauce-You said you feel Northwestern students 
are somewhat apthetic. Do you think there are legitimate 
areas to which students could reform? 

Olson— Yes, I do. But if there were even a sniff of a formal, 
legal protest every cop within a 100-mile radius would con- 
verge on the campus. Students are policed too much , 

There are a number of reforms worthy of undertaking, but 
everyone is too cautious. Working on a newspaper I guess 
you know. How far could the Current Sauce go with an editor- 
ial, say on curfew hours for women? I think the editorial pow- 
er of the paper has the right and duty to lead instead of just 
commenting positively or negatively on some form of 
change that someone else has initiated. 

Students are repressed, but I understand that is is not as 
bad as Southeastern. The AAUF (American Association of 
University Professors) just blacklisted Southeastern for such 

NSC students are not repressed as much as Southeastern 
but there is more than any school I've ever been associated 

Current Sauce— As a member of the Student Publications 
Committc what do you think can be done about seeing chang- 
es through the Current Sauce's editorial leadership? 

Olson-First. I don't think the SGA (Student Government 
Association) should have a thing to do with the paper. 
Under the present system, the SGA has to approve the staff 
members and in effect can control who runs the paper. I think 
the staff editors themselves should make selections as to who 
will work on the paper and then have those selections respon- 
sible to the Student Publications Committee. After all, who 
knows more about the ability of upcoming staff members 
than the editors themselves? 

Secondly, I think the editors should be given so me i ndica-

Demons Named 

It was not until 1922— more than a 
decade after La. Normal fielded ath- 
letic teams— that the Natchitoches 
college came up with a nickname for 
its teams. In that year college offi- 
cials decided that nameless athletic 
squads were "out" and a befitting 
label should follow the name La. 

President V.L. Roy and Coach H. 
Lee Prather decided to sponsor a con- 
test, open to all students, for the pur- 
pose of choosing a name that would 
"embody their indomitable spirit." 

A committee narrowed the entries 
down to two selections, Braves and 
Demons. An overwhelming vote of 
the student body chose the present 

Miss Aileen Ritter and Mr. Truett 
Scarborough were the winners of the 
$10 prize given for the winning name. 

Other names submitted were Spar- 
tans, Lions, Fighters, Warriors, 
Chiefs, Eagles, Falcons, Boosters, 
Sharks, Gridiron Knights, Bearcats, 
Daredevils, Emperors, and Cannons. 

Also Deers, Bucks, Musketeers, 
Invincibles, Big Chiefs, Panthers, 
Ground Hogs, Royalists, Victors, 
Cyclops, Dragons, Bloodhounds, 
Terriers, Cubs, Professors, Cannon > 
Balls, Cavaliers, Leopards, Red- 
skins, Pioneers, Wasps, and Rattle- 

How does La. Normal Demons grab 

All-Opponent Backs 

How's this for a Demon All- 
Opponent backfield? 

Larry Grissom--The McNeese 
leading ground gainer and scorer. 
Grissom has run for the GSC lead in 
rushing and has 60 points. He 
smashed for 106 yards of his total 990 
against the Demons. 

Joe Profit— The Jet set a Northeast 
school record in rushing yardage 
against the Demons. Joe is No. 2 in 
the rushing race over the GSC. He 
sped for 169 stripes in Demon 
Stadium. Has 919 on the year. 

Terry Bradshaw—The All- 
American chunked for 255 yards and 
two scores with a 13-23 performance 
in the State Fair Classic. Bradshaw 
is 119-217 on the season and has 1,999 
yards passing. The Bomber has 12 
TD tosses and has scored 11 times. 

Larry Schreiber— The greatest 
individual performance Fve' ever 
seen was when Schreiber 'met the 
Demons. The Tennessee Tech All- 
American hopeful went over, under, 
around, and through Northwestern 
for an unbelievable 255 yards on only 
21 carries. For the season Schreiber 
has 1,522 yards rushing. He holds 
over a score of Ohio Valley Con- 
ference records and recently became 
only the seventh college runner in 
history to crack the 4,000 yard mark 
for a career. 

Incidentally, the Demons won 
three of the four games that these Ail- 
American candidates played in. 

Help Us, Help 

As was rather obvious when the 
Current Sauce was a tabloid, space 
on the sports pages was scarce and 
sports reporters were the same as the 

limited pages. But we've changed at 
least half of the problem and now the 
CS has ample room to cater to divi- 
sions of NSC athletics that received 
little or no coverage in the past. 

There still is the problem of per- 
sonnel but we are very willing to 
give coverage to the smaller sports 
such as the Rodeo Club, Neptune 
Club, Archery Club, tennis and golf 
teams, badminton team, girl's basket- 
ball, and others. 

But the sports department does not 
have enough reporters to cover these 
small but important activities and 
we would like to ask members of 
these sports to, when news is 
happening, bring a story or simply 
notes to the Current Sauce office. 

Also, if any of our readers have 
questions about NSC sports or 
athletics in general or would like to 
ask a question to any of the coaches, 
write it down and we will answer it 
for you in the paper. 

Bowls, Rules Added 

The National Collegiate Athletic 
Association (NCAA) to which North- 
western is a member, has added two 
bowls in the Collegiate Division. 

The Amos Alonzo Stagg (West) and 
Knute Rockne (East) Bowls have 
been annexed. The East region has 
70 institutions, the West 93. 

Stagg and Rockne have been recog- 
nized as two of the greatest coaches 
in college football's centennial year. 

The NCAA has also issued a 
requirement that all collegiate base- 
ball players will have to wear pro- 
tective headgear both while batting 
and running the bases. In past years 
wearing headgear while running the 
bases was optional. 

This Week's 

Keep those cards and letters com- 
ing in fans. Your consoling words 
are all that has pulled me through 
last weekend's disastrous four out of 
seven showing. 

Last week's bomb-out brought the 
season slate to 34 right, 11 wrong, for 
a .755 percentage. This go-around 
will be the last during the regular 
season. -My crystal ball needs a rest 
before the bowls. 

NSC 21, Southeastern 17-The 
Lions have held a curse over the 
Purple and White in the past few 
years and could possibly maintain it. 

But in this matchup of offense 
(Demons) against defense (SLC) the 
BIG D prevails. La. Tech 56, 
Northeast 3-Mercy! Tech could 
wrap up the GSC title to go with the 
Grantland Rice Bowl with a win. 
Southwestern 28, McNeese 24-Both 
teams will be shooting for a .500 
season but injury riddled Cowboys 
will feel USL's brand. LSU 49, 
Tulane 10— Charlie Mac will leave his 
seniors in for their last regularly 
scheduled game and that will be 
enough for a convincing victory. 
San Francisco 49ers 35, New Orleans 
Saints 28-PureJy a guess.

Vega's Gymnasts Open 
Season In West Texas 

The Northwestern 
gymnastics team opens its 
competition for this year on 
the road this weekend. The 
nationally-known and re- 
spected gymnasts will at- 
tend a meet in Odessa, Te- 
xas, under the guidance of 
Coach Armando Vega. 

The gymnastics team is 
the defending NAIA cham- 
pion again this year, having 
taken the national 
championship in the Nation- 
al Association of Intercol- 
legiate Athletics competi- 
tion for the past four years. 
Vega was coaching the local 
team each of those four 
championship years. 

NSC's squad will return 
from the West Texas meet 
this weekend and begin pre- 
paration for their first meet 
on the Natchitoches campus 
this season. Tuesday, the 
Demons will be competing 
with a team from Western 
Illinois University in the 
Men's Gym here. 

Assistant Coach Dan Gar- 
cia, who is himself a former 
NSC gymnast and graduate 
assistant under Vega, will 
be traveling with the NSC 
team on their trip this week- 

John Ellas heads the eight- 
man team this year. The Ail- 
American from Birming- 
ham gained berths on five 
different All-American 
teams last year. Vega dis- 
closed that he does not 
intend to allow Ellas to 
participate in every regu- 
larly scheduled meet this 
year, but he will see action 
in a large number of post- 
season meets. 

The outstanding North- 
western product is concen- 
trating chiefly on the "still 
rings," having won nume- 
rous all-around titles last 

Gymnast Paul Tickenoff 
of Los Angeles proves that 
the past and future success 
of the team is not dependent 
solely upon Ellas. The 
talented junior also gained a 
couple of All-American cita- 
tions last season, mainly for 
his excellence in the long 
horse vaulting and parallel 
bars events. 

Both the United States 
Gymnastics Federation and 
the AAU named Tickenoff to 
their All-American rosters. 

Young, yet capable gym- 
nasts comprise the remain- 
der of the team. Though 
each was courted heavily by 
scouts from other schools 
Coach Vega was successful 
in persuading them to apply 
their talents here. 

The six other gymnasts 
holding positions on the 
team are Max Magdaleno 
from Los Angeles, Bruce 
McGartlin from New 
Orleans, Bill Luciano from 
New York City, Doug Brown 
from Boston, Pat Dial from 
Baton Rouge, and Bob Quin- 
tanales form Chicago. 

Vega hinted at the possi- 
bility of red-shirting Mag- 

daleno, but he will have the 
others competing regularly. 
Vega said, "He is an All- 
American, too. But Max and 
I have talked it over, and we 
feel that it would be a smart 
course of action."

nastics team schedule is as

That's the famous dare of the one who says 
he's an atheist. 
And if he's not immediately floored by a 

lightning bolt, he usually sneers, "See? So what 
is all this God baloney?" 
All of which proves that he doesn't know very 
much about talking to God. 

Indeed, even people of faith sometimes feel 
unhappy when their "prayers aren't answered." 
Which means that they've forgotten that God 
always answers our prayers. And sometimes 
the answer is No. 
That's a good thing to remember in these times 
that often seem almost too difficult to bear. 
When it seems like God's gone away permanently. 
God is not dead. 
God Is. 

And, moreover, His sense of hearing is very acute. 
So why not start talking to Him again? He's a 
good listener.

shooting a deer one time, I 
watched ! him run out of 
sight thinking I had missed, 
but I heard him fall. I found 
him a couple of hundred 
yards from where he was hit. 

Look for a fluff of hair on a 
twig or a drop of blood on 
the ground, but don't give up 
because you can't find any 
sign of a hit. Wait 20 to 30 
minutes before following 
under most conditions. If 
there is a rain or snowfall or 
if it will be dark soon, then 
trail the deer as soon as 

The care you take after the 
kill will determine how 
your venison will taste on 
the dinner table. There is 
not enough room here to go 
into detail about dressing 
out a deer so I'll just say try 
to keep the meat clean. It 
may look sporty to put your 
buck across the hood of your 
car, but the heat from the 
motor will quickly ruin 
fresh meat. If you put him 
in the trunk, leave it open a 
little and, if possible, put the 
deer on some rolled up news- 
papers to allow air to circu- 
late under him. 

Most reports I get from all 
around indicate that there 
were plenty of ducks on 
opening day. If you are 
looking for a place to go 
duck hunting nearby, you 
might try the upper end of 
Sibley Lake. You will need 
to get a permit for the lake 
which everyone who goes 
on the lake is supposed to 
have. I believe it costs 
about a dollar. 

Fishing on Toledo Bend is 
slow now except for crap- 
pie. I hear they are really 
bitting. The frequent 
changes in weather we are 
having now will make fish- 
ing a hit or miss propo- 

If you have a picture of a 
deer or a string of fish or 
any kind of game you have 
gotten, bring it by the Cur-

Building and we'll see if we 
can print it.

Demons Close Year of 'Desire 9 

Gossett's Crew Astounds Seers; 
Finish With Winning Season 

By Pesky Hill

curtain on the 1969 grid sea-

mond when they invade the 
den of the Southeastern 
Lions in Gulf States Con-

Having already clinched 
at least a tie for second 
place in the GSC, Coach 
Glenn Gossett's club 
possesses a lusty 6-2 mark 
overall and a 3-1 loop rec- 
ord. Louisiana Tech is the 
league-leader with a 4-0 
conference slate. 

A win over SLC tomorrow 
night and an upset win by 
cellar-dwelling Northeast 
over Tech would give the De-

Discarding a season open- 
ing nightmare in Alabama 
and a loss to nationally 
ranked La. Tech, the success 

of the Demons has been 
remarkable. NSC has defied 
the pre-season forecastsT 
which said that the '69 ver- 
sion of the Demons would 
not be a winning team. 

Using a crushing offen- 
sive machine and a hard-hit- 
ting defensive unit, North- 
western grabbed a hard- 
fought 33-28 victory over 
Southwestern in its most re- 
cent performance. 

Desire Pays Off 

Typical of NSC's play all 
season, the Demons used a 
lot of "heart, desire, and 
character" last Saturday 
night. Twice in the second 
half the Purple and White 
came from behind to get on 

Blessed with the talents of 
fullback Richard 
Ware, halfbacks Vic Nyvall 
and Tommy Wallis, North- 
western's unstoppable 
ground game has been aver- 
agin 259.7 yards per game. 
Ware leads the pack with 
523 yards, while Nyvall has 
446 yards and Wallis has 398 

Add quarterback Mike 
Pool and halfbacks Tom 

Hagin and Tony Papa to 
NSC's infantry, and one can 
see why the Demons have 
one of the top small college 
rushing units in the nation. 
Pool has scrambled for 319 
yards, while Papa and Hag- 
in have scooted for 257 and 
63 respectively. 

Strength vs. Strength 

However, this weeks's bat- 
tle between SLC and NSC 
will match strength against 
strength. Southeastern 
leads the conference in rush- 
ing defense, while the De- 
mons have the best rushing 

But the interesting aspect 
of the NSC offensive attack 
is the use of the aerial game. 
The Demons run right over 
the opposition and when 
needed — Pool simply fires a 
strike to either Steve Gas- 
pard Al Phillips, Wayne 
Haney, or Nyvall. 

It's really disgusting for a 
defense to say, "Okay, it's 
third down and long yard- 
age so the Demons are go- 
ing to pass." NSC does pass 
knd gets the crucial first 
down yardage. That's been 
the case time after time this 

Indeed, Gaspard (6-0. 187) 
and Phillips (5-10,172) are 
two of the finest receivers 
ever to put a unifrom on at 
NSC. Both gridders have 
made numerous clutch 
receptions throughout their 
careers — and especially in 
the last few games. 

A tight end, Gaspard has 
caught 20 passes for 261 
yards and has the school rec- 
ord for most career recep- 
tions. Steve's specialty is 
taking in a short pass and 
then bulling his way for ex- 
tra yardage after the catch. 

Returning next fall for his 
senior season, Phillips also 
has 20 receptions this season 
but is leadi ng in yardage

Defensively, the Demons 
may not be the best in the 
league but they have come 
through with the big plays

rated players of the NSC 
team this fall have been the 
offensive linemen. Tackles

McCrary have done the 
"dirty work" for NSC's hard- 
running backs. 

Southeastern, which has 
beaten the Demons the past 
two years, hopes to snap 
Northwestern's three game 
winning streak Sa turday 
night. But eight NSC sen- 
iors (Burrow, Boogaerts, 
Callens, Nyvall, Gaspard,

have different ideas. They 
want to win the last one

Thanksgiving Turkey Is 
Actually An Old Custom 

FridayJNovember 21, 

War Thanksgiving lost 
some of its local New Eng- 
land character. The Contin- 
ental Congress recom- 
mended no less than eight 
days of Thanks. They fell in 
April, May, July, and Dec- 

In its religious character 
the old Yankee Thanks- 
giving was a curious hy- 
brid. On one side was the se- 
vere ancestral orthodoxy 
and a religion which has 
been aptly described as a 
sense that something awful 
was always going to hap- 
pen; and on the '••other hand 
the official Church order to 
rejoice and give thanks. 

But the festal trait of the 
old Yankee Thanksgiving 
was the prime mark of the 
day. It was one time of the 
year when into the hard- 
fisted home life and its deep 
religious gloom the sun- 
light fairly entered. 

Thanksgiving Today 

The Thanksgiving of the 
present is built upon the 
Thanksgiving of the past, 
but has incorporated into it- 
self many of the genial fea- 
tures of Christmas, and 

this, in its turn, has among 
Americans borrowed some- 
thing from the modern holi- 
day. There has been an 
unconscious unification of 
the two feasts in certain 
material aspects. The 
Thanksgiving turkey has 
driven the Christmas goose 
from all tables; and on the 
other hand the mince pie of 
Christmas shares the honor 
of completing the Thanks- 
giving indigestion with the 
pumpkin pie which once 
monopolized the work. 

Thanksgiving continues 
to be observed by church 
services, family reunions, 
dinners, and home festivi- 
ties. The church service, in- 
cluding appropriate scrip- 
ture reading and hymns, the 
reading of the proclam- 
ations of President and gov- 
ernor, and a sermon, up- 
holds the religious tradition. 

Families, widely scat- 
tered, meet at the bountiful 
thanksgiving dinners of 
roast turkeys, pumpkin and 
mince pies to discuss its 
reunions, its vacant chairs, 
its yearly story of profit or 
of pain. 

By Deloris Mays 

Thanksgiving is a holi - 
day observed in all the 
United States. Custom pre- 
scribes that the day shall be 
set by special proclamation 
of the President, and adds 
that the day be the last 
Thursday in November. The 
proclamation appears to 
stamp the feast with a sort 
of official character poss- 
essed by no other holiday in 
America. But, like every 
other holiday Thanksgiving 
customs vary with locality 
and time. 


The celebration has a long 
and curious history. The 
real origin of Thanksgiving 
as a day specially set apart 
for the rejoicing and prayer 
is attributed to Governor 
Bradford, the first governor 
of Massachusetts Colony. 
In gratitude for the plen- 
teous harvest of 1621 foll- 
owing a depression, he pro- 
claimed a day of thanks- 
giving on Dec. 13. 

He at once sent out four 
men in search of food. Thus 
early in the history of the 
day does our good friend the 
turkey make his appear- 
ance. The four men returned 
struggling under the burden 
of turkeys sufficient to meet 
the wants of the little colony 
for a week. 

At the first dawn of the 
day one of the cannon that 
crowned the hill-top 
thundered forth a salute. A 
solemn procession to the 
meeting house was formed, 
the men marching three 
abreast. After the service 
dinner followed. 

The day of Thanksgiving 
lengthened into three, feast- 
ings being varied with the 
singing of psalms and 
songs, with war dances by 
the savages, with exhi- 
bitions of military drill by 
Captain Standish's well- 
trained soldiery and sports 
and pasttimes of the Eng- 
> lish middle class. 
! In the following years the 
day was appointed once a 
year, sometimes twice, 
sometimes a year or two 
were skipped— according to 
reasons available, a victory 
over the Indians, a ship's 
arrival, or a bountiful har- 
vest. The frequent appoint- 
ment for the last cause made see the Current Sauce. As Manuel graduated frorn ;

Panhellenic Council Will Hold Tea 

By Molly Chancey 

The Panehllenic Council 
has announced a social tea 
to head the roster of Greek 
rush events for the 1970 
spring semester at North- 

All women intrested in 
joining a sorority are in- 
vited to attend the affair, 
which is to be held on 
December 2 at 7-8 p.m. 
in Room 216 of the Stu- 
dent Union. Participants 
are advised to wear dressy 

According to Panhellenic 
Council President Sherry 
Hale, attendance of the tea 
does not obligate any stu- 
dent to affiliate herself with 
a sorority. The Council 
views the gathering merely 
as an attempt to acquaint 
women on campus with pro- 
spects and advantages of 
sorority life, expose them 
to the types of friends they 
can expect within the Greek 
circles, and officially open 
the 1970 spring rush sea- 

The program will feature 
a variety of speakers on 
topics related to Greek life, 
as well as serving of refre- 

shments and the first rush 
party of the season after 
the tea's conclusion. 

Miss Hale only recently 
assumed the top executive 
position of the Panhellenic 
Council due to the marri- 
age and resignation of her 
immediate superior in that 
that organization, Karen 
Allen. Miss Allen, who still 
resides in Natchitoches, 
surrendered her post re- 
cently when she became 
Mrs. Paul Robinson. 

Regarding the up-and- 
coming social tea, Miss 
Hale describes its worth

bably represents the best 
opportunity any girl on 
campus will have to go Gre- 
ek. One reason is that all 
of the sororities will be 
represented then, and ano- 
ther is that the organiza- 
tions are especially in need 
of new girls right now. 

"For instance, one of 
the sororities has mem- 
bership below national re- 
quirements, and one is go- 
ing to graduate quite a few

The Tri Sigma's had a 
busy week preparing for 
homecoming activities. We 
worked hard on our display; 
our efforts were rewarded 
when the judges awarded us 
place prize in the Greek 

After the game there was 
an Open House for parents 
and friends. Later, a Big Sis 
and LiT Sis slumber party. 
At this time the members 
were entertained by pled- 
ges. The highlight of the 
night—besides "lights out" 
at 4:30 a.m.— was the dis- 
covery of the identities of 
the "big sisters." 

Two Tri Sigmas were on 
the Homecoming Court, 
Margaret Kovar and Joanne 

We extend our congratula- 
tions to Carolyn Ehrhardt, a 
semi-finalist in the Lady of 
the Bracelet Pageant and 
also to Lynda Henderson 
and Susan Nickerson, mem- 
bers of the winter ball court. 


The brothers of Theta Chi 
Colony journeyed to USL 
this past weekend to watch 
the Demons stomp the Bull- 
dogs. Afterwards there was 
a party held at the home of 
Dr. Robert Hebert in Lafa- 

This week the Theta Chi's 
are beginning plans for the 
Winter Semi-Formal to be 
held Dec. 18. The pledge 
class is in charge of the 
festivities. An "apartment 
party" is planned after the 
Platters Concert on Dec. 6. 

Presently the brothers are 
arranging plans for our 
final football game at 
Southeastern. At this time 
we would like to give our 
sincere best wishes to the 
Demons and commend them 
for a truly great season.

"The happy I am 

when I'm straight is more beautiful 
than the happy I seemed to be when 
I was stoned." 

The girl 
as "speed." This 


in the picture is named Chris. For over a year, she was on amphetamines, powerful drugs known 

is how she describes it: 

"I think 'speed' is a lot worse than heroin. Kids have got to 
know about it, because they can fall so easily into taking it 
through the diet pill hassle, or needing something to help them 
study. You know, that's crazy. Because the combination of am- 
phetamines and no sleep just blows your memory completely. 
There are whole sections of my life which I just can't remember. 
It got to be just 'do a little more, do a little more,' until that was 
all there was. And the 'crashing' . . . sometimes the 'crashing' is 
just really awful! 

"For me to stop taking it, I had to feel that people were car- 
ing. And they were. I was really lucky. I was very close to two 
people that were really into amphetamines very deeply, and I 
loved them a lot. But as far as they were concerned, the only thing 
that they had was the 'meth,' and that was their life. And they're 
both dead now." 

"Dexies," "bennies," "meth" are all called "speed" these 
days. And people who know "speed" know "speed" kills!

The time of departure was 
planned for 11 a.m. Wednes-

will begin Thursday even- 
ing with one scheduled at 
6:30 p.m. and one at 7:45 p.m. 

Friday morning the in- 
dividual events will take 
place. Donnie Couvillion 
and Sherry Buckner will 
participate in impromtu 
speaking. Vickie Russell

AWS President Lynda 
Henderson announced at the 
meeting Monday night that 
canned goods and staple 
foods were collected by 
AWS representatives in 
women's residence halls 
and were distributed to 
underprivileged families 
throughout Natchitoches 
Parish over the holidays 
last week. 

According to Dean 
Hendrick, who is also advis- 
er to the women's group, the 
AWS plans to repeat this 
project to provide Christ- 
mas toys and baskets of food 
to more area families. 

SGA Loan Fund 
Is Discontinued 

The Student Government 
Association Loan Fund pro- 
gram has been discontinued 
indefinitely, pending pay- 
ment of overdue loans. 

At present, some 200 
students have overdue loans 
totaling $5,000, causing the 
fund to be $1,750 overdrawn. 

The loan fund, initiated in 
1956, has been a benefit to 
students needing to borrow 
up to $75 for a period of 45 
days. The interest charged 
on any of these loans was 
only 50 cents. 

Now, the program will no 
longer be available to stu- 
dents until a substantial 
amount of the debt is payed, 
according to the Executive 
Council of the SGA. 

A list will be printed in 
the next issue of the Current 
Sauce of all those students 
who have not payed off their 
debt to the loan fund on time. 

Flagpole Given 
New Location 

The flagpole, which has 
stood in front of Caldwell 
Hall since its placement 
there many years ago (so 
many that few people can 
remember the actual date), 
will soon be moved to the 
area in front of St. Denis 
Dining Hall. 

This move, which is spon- 
sored by the AMS, was 
necessitated by the shift in 
the center of campus acti- 
vity. There were three sites 
under consideration. Two, 
which were in front of the 
Student Union, would have 
required either the removal 
of a large amount of cement 
or the disposal of two large 
trees. The area in front of 
St. Denis was chosen as the 
most convenient site. 

A plaque is to be placed at 
some point on or near the 
flagpole, dedicating it to the 
men of NSC who have serv- 
ed in the wars. 

The annual spring battle 
between lowerclassmen and 
upperclassmen to raise a 
flag or other items of inter- 
est on the pole has been 
discontinued. In the scuffle 
to raise the flag the pole usu- 
ally received many dents 
and was bent several times. 
The design of the flagpole 
now permits it to be lowered 
easily on a pivot.

Scholarship Is 
Awarded Here 

Katherine L. Smith of 
Many has been awarded the 
Northwestern State College 
Nursing Scholarship by the 
Eighth District American 
Legion Post. 

The second annual 
scholarship award was pre- 
sented by the Forty and 
Eight Voiture of the Ameri- 
can Legion. 

Dr. Peggy Ledbetter, dean 
of the School of Nursing at 
Northwestern, said the 
grant is given annually to a 
senior who has excelled 
scholastically in the nurs- 
ing program at North- 

The scholarship recipient 
must also reside in the 
Eighth District and must be 
a daughter of a veteran. 

Co-chairmen of the scho- 
larship commitee for the 
Forty and Eight organiza- 
tion were Richard Cespevia 
and William Hughes, both of 
Alexandria. Dr. Ledbetter 
and Miss Smith participated 
in presentation ceremonies 
this week at the Bunkie 
American Legion Home.

A 1966 graduate of Many

ter. She has been active 
while at Northwestern in 
the Louisiana Student

Miss Smith is the 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
C.E. Smith of Many.

student would pay a mini- 
mum fee which would be 
less than the cost of the 
entertainment booklets. 
Students would then be ad- 
mitted to the concerts with 
their ID cards. 

The present budget for the 
committee is a maximum of 
$20,000 a semester. An allot- 
ment of about $5,000 from 
student fees provides part of 
this while the remainder of 
the funds comes from the 
sale of season tickets. 

This presents a problem 
to the SGA since an average 
group costs around $5,000 or 
more while the more popu- 
lar groups cost a minimum 
of $10,000. This arises be- 
cause the cost of the groups 
has increased while the 
budget has not. 

Under the supervision of 
Dean Fulton, the entertain- 
ment committee books the 
groups through various 
agencies. To choose which 
groups will come, the 
committee finds out from 
the agencies which groups 
are available. Then it nar-

final decision.

The committee is also

sing popularity of this type

that the students would en- 
joy the addition. 

American people generally 
are a tolerant bunch-almost 
to a fault. But even they 
have their limit. And they 
appear to have reached it. 
They apparently feel that 
the period for 'under- 
standing' hoodlumism, riot- 
ing, crimes against 
individuals and other forms 
of law defiance is past. 
They are saying by their 
votes that whatever the 
'causes' the dissidents are 
promoting-and in some 
cases, at least, these causes 
are completely phony-vio- 
lence will no longer be 
tolerated. ..." 

Former governor Jimmie 
H. Davis will be featured 
speaker at Northwestern 
State College's fall 
commencement exercises, 
according to President 
Arnold R. Kilpatrick. 

Northwestern's fall 
graduation ceremonies will 
be held Jan. 22 in Prather 
Coliseum at 8 p.m., with 332 
students scheduled to re- 
ceive graduate and under- 
graduate degrees. 

Davis, who served as 
governor from 1944 through 
1948 and again from 1960 
through 1964, is a native of 
Jackson Parish. He spent 
much of his adult life in 
Shreveport and now resides 
in Baton Rouge. 

In addition to his political 
success, Davis has won 
fame as a recording artist, 
musical performer, and 
songwriter. He is also a 
prominent businessman, 
cattleman and farmer. 

The former governor, who 
has been mentioned often as 
a possible gubernatorial 
candidate in the next elec- 
tion, has never lost a politi- 
cal election in many years 
of public service on the 
local, regional and state 

A graduate of Louisiana 
College, Davis went on to 
earn a master's degree from 
Louisiana State University. 
Following graduation from 
LSU, he taught at both the 
high school and college 

During his early political 
career, Davis served as 
clerk of the Shreveport 
Criminal Court and as a 
member of the Commission 
Council in Shreveport. He 
later became a Commissio- 
ner of the Third Public Ser- 
vice District. 

He has recorded dozens of 
country and folk music 
records, and his albums of 
gospel music are always on 
the best-selling lists. 

Davis has written and co- 
authored some 300 songs, 
including such classics as 
"You Are My Sunshine," 
and "Nobodys Darlin' But 
Mine." "Sunshine" has sold 
millions of copies and has 
been translated into more 
than a dozen foreign lang-

Fines Too Frequent Here 

A few weeks ago, an editorial was printed in the 
Current Sauce concerning the generosity some 
nembers of our Campus Security force liave dis- 
ilayed in giving out parking and traffic tickets. 
In recent weeks the problem has been getting 
lorse, not better. Most, if not all, students can bare- 
afford to attend college, let alone contribute 
loney to the Campus Security office, so it seems 
bat the persons responsible for this showering of 
ikets for dubious reasons would go a little more 
ily on the student, 
phis semester, the car registration fee was 
preased to $3~another pinch in the pocket. Also, 
ving violations fines saw a tremendous 
Crease, reportedly resulting from a federal ruling 
Ven though in some parts of the state, fines for 
gse same violations aren't nearly so high). 
find now, parking tickets are being awarded to 
idents parking at the Coliseum. This practice is 
Pposed to help curb traffic on campus, but, as 
"ted in the previous editorial, we feel this is too 
fcstic and too ineffective a method for this 
pus. This is something like Natchitoches 
lice giving tickets for parking across the river 
ply to cut down on traffic across the bridges, 
fcy don't do this, so why should we? 
This is not to say that tickets should not be given 
VL It is merely stating that there should be some 
Jtibility in this traffic situation-but there isn't.

campus streets.He was given a ticket for

following is a syndicated 
column now being offered to 
college newspapers across 
the nation. The staff of the 
Current Sauce has decided 
to include it in this news- 
paper periodically in hopes 
that some of the questions 
and anwers will benefit NSC 
students. Despite the fact 
that Dr. Werner treats the 
topics of drugs, pregnancy, 
sex, and birth control 
frankly, we feel that the 
information is beneficial 
enough to warrant printing 
his column.) 

Question: Is it possible to 
become addicted to aspirin? 
I have severe headaches and 
find myself taking between 
15 and 20 aspirin a day. 
They help my headaches, 
but are there some long 
range side effects I should 
know about? 

Answer: No, it is not 
possible to become addicted 
to aspirin. But I wonder 
why you aren't more 
worried about the severe 
headaches that don't seem to 
be going away. While 15 and 
20 aspirin a day might re- 
lieve your headaches, you 
are reaching the range 
where ringing in the ears be- 
gins. More importantly, 
that many aspirins per day 
over a long period of time 
can produce gastrointes- 
tinal bleeding and may acti- 
vate an ulcer. 

Headaches have a variety 
of origins. Most are short 
lived and occur infre- 
quently. When headaches 
persist, are frequent, or of 
unusual intensity, medical 
svaluation is in order. My 
advice to you is like the TV 
commercial that says: "If 
pain persists, see your doc- 

Question: By now, we are 
all aware that marijuana is 
not detrimental to a per- 
son's health, but what about 
a pregnant person? I think 
my girl friend is pregnant 
and as we often smoke 
grass, and have for quite a 
while, I am concerned about 
the effect this might have on 
our future baby. Have you 
any information on how 
grass might affect either the 
the growth of the baby or the 
health of the mother? 

Answer: Your assumption 
that we are all aware that 
marijuana is not detri- 
mental to a person's health 
is unfounded. There exists a 
large number of people and 
a few German shepherds in 
this country who are con- 
vinced that marijuana is the 

plague bacillus rein- 

So, considering that most 
informed people are aware 
that marijuana is not detri- 
mental to most people's 
health, your question about 
a pregnant person becomes 
very relevant. The Thali- 
damide tragedy has rightly 
made people very concerned 
about what they take into 
their bodies during 

While research evidence 
of damage with marijuana 
is lacking, it remains fool- 
hardy to take the smallest 
risk of damaging your 
future baby by absorbing 
any non-vital drug during 
pregnancy. This would be 
an ideal time for your girl- 
friend to visit an obstetri- 
cian for correct prenatal 
care, to give up smoking 
cigarettes, as that leads to 
small babies and to decide 
whether or not marriage 
might affect the growth of 
the baby or the health of the

As I See It.. 

Coed Views Lottery 

By Molly Chancey 

Some of us stood near the door, others sat or 
stood in quiet circles around the room as we lis- 
tened to the radio announcer's calm, well-modu- 
lated voice read the birthdays of young men subject 
to draft under the new lottery system. 

I stood near the door and watched faces. They 
were stripped of the usual pleasant masks and 
coquettishness, bared in intensity to the full impact 
of what they heard. We listened to the droniner of 
birthdates, each girl repeating one over and over,' 
in her mind, expecting and fearing its announce- 
ment at every turn. A girl I had never liked stood 
near me, and I realized with a jolt that I felt 
friendly, like a sister, to her. In thoseinstants of fear 
and mutual dread, we understood each other as 
individuals faced with a far greater problem than 
the usual ones of existence. 

It wasn't that we thought the calling out of a birth- 
date meant for certain that its owner would actu- 
ally be drafted. It wasn't that. It was something in 
the announcer's assured, almost Fascist voice, 
unraveling a spool of human fate in a tone that im- 
plied, "This is the way it will be and no other," 
something in the huddled faces of girls who knew 
that they had no defense to this bar to their hap- 
piness, something of the inevitable tragedy of pick- 
ing a name out of a hat to fight in an unjustified and 
meaningless war. 

One girl cried, "But it isn't fair!" Another said, 
"This war will never be fair." 

And perhaps she was right. But we didn't linger 
on that thought for long. We just sat soundlessly re- 
peating a birthdate and a name over and over into 
the unanswering blackness of the night.

Those Amendments 

At the bottom of this page is printed a couple of 
proposed amendments to be voted upon Thursday, 
Dec. 11. Both proposals have substantial 
importance to NSC students and are worthy of at- 

The first involves voting membership on the 
SGA's School Spirit Committee. The alteration 
states, "the voting members of the School Spirit 
Committee shall be composed of one representative 
from each chartered organization on campus. Five 
cheerleaders and five members of the pom pom 
squad shall also serve as voting members. The 
chairman shall be appointed by the President of the 
Student Government Association." 

This, we feel, is a definite improvement over the 
existing setup, which specifies that five students 
appointed by the President of the SGA and three 
cheerleaders shall be the voting members on the 

By including a representative from each of the 
organizations on this committee, a more 
representative service can be performed by this 
group. If everyone participates faithfully, there 
need no longer be dissension among students and 
groups because one group which is better repre- 
sented on this committee happens to win more 
spirit awards. 

In addition, a more representative body such as 
this amendment could provide could also serve to 
enhance the school spirit on this campus, and could 
become, in short, a more effective organization. 
Sauce Scholarship 

Now, I come to a topic quite dear to my heart, and 
also important to Northwestern students—at least 
those who read and sometimes enjoy the Current 
Sauce. As you will note, the second amendment to 
be voted upon Thursday involves an additional 
scholarship position for the Current Sauce. 

Three weeks ago, we, the staff, were able to more 
than double the size of this newspaper. We hope to 
continue to grow this year and hereafter. But, at 
present, we are doing twice the work with the same, 
or nearly the same, size staff. 

Because more people are needed to work for the 
paper and are required to spend more time it is 
necessary that more money be given to these stu- 
dent journalists. 

A few years ago, the Current Sauce staff was 
alotted seven full scholarships, but for some rea- 
son, this number was cut back to five, as it remains 
today. And at that time, that staff was producing 
from a fourth to one-half the newspaper you're 
reading now. 

The point is that there are now more students 
who are deserving more pay than ever before, and 
under the present system, they aren't getting it. 

Therefore, when you vote Thursday for these 
amendments along with the Mr. and Miss NSC elec-

Gary Morgan Interviews Faculty Leader 

Proposed Amendments 

Article VI, Section 7, Sub- 
section A. Membership. 

The voting members of 
the School Spirit Committee 
shall be composed of one 
representative from each 
chartered organization on 
campus. Five cheerleaders 
and five members of the 
pom oon squad shall also 
serve as voting members. 

The chairman shall be 
appointed by the President 
of the Student Government 

Article X, Section 2, Para- 
graph 2, shall state in part: 
"Scholarship positions on 

the Current Sauce will not 
exceed six full-time scholar- 
ships, including the Editor 
and Business Manager." 

In continuing with its pol- 
icy of presenting an inter- 
view with some member of 
the NSC faculty in each 
issue, the Current Sauce 
posed a few questions this 
week to Dr. Richard Gallo- 
way of the Department of 
Special Education. 

Dr. Galloway, who has 
been at Northwestern since 
1961, grew up in Rapides 
Parish and graduated from 
Bolton High School in Alex- 
andria. He attended L.S.U. 
and did a year of graduate 
work there. 

After receiving a pro- 
fessional degree in psychi- 
atric social work from Tu- 
lane, he did field work in 
Mandeville. He earned a 
doctorate from Colorado 
State College in special 
education and rehabilitation 

At present, Dr. Galloway 
serves as coordinator of all 
special education services 
in Natchitoches and DeSoto 
Parishes. He mainly works 
with children who have 
learning problems in school 
and with their parents. The 
children's problems may 
stem from mental retar- 
dation, poor social back- 
ground, or many other fac- 

Besides his other duties, 
Dr. Galloway is chairman of 
the Faculty Senate and the 
Discipline Committee. The 
following are his comments 
on students, teachers, and 
the college scene in general. 
Current Sauce: Since you 
are chairman of the Disci- 
pline Committee and, thus, 
in a position to be in contact 
with this aspect of college 
life, have you noticed any 
trends in student- conduct or 
behavior over the last year 
or so? 

Galloway: Basically, I 
think student behavior is 
similiar to what it always 
has been. Today students 
are a lot more open and less 
inhibited than in previous 
years. It's true that a few 
young people are going to 
the dogs, but the majority 

are more sensitive to the 
needs of others than they ev- 
er have been. Students are 
no better or no worse than in 
my generation. 
Current Sauce; You men- 
tioned that young people 
today are less inhibited. In 
what ways would you consi- 
der them as such? 

Galloway; They are less 
inhibited as far as their ac- 
tions are concerned. A lot of 
young people will tell you 
what they really think. This 
irritates the oldsters be- 
cause they think it is a 
threat to their society. 

Current Sauce: How do 
you think the conduct of 
Northwestern students com- 
pares with that of college 
students on a national level? 

Galloway: You have to 
consider a special frame of 
reference in answering a 
question like that. What 
would be considered 
improper in one area might 
be perfectly all right in an- 
other. We have many fine 
students on campus, but, as 
elsewhere, the problem 
cases are the ones you al- 
ways hear about. 

Current Sauce: What 
would you call a problem 
case on a college campus? 

Galloway: I am not so con- 
cerned about the student 
who lets his hair down once 
in awhile. It is those stu- 
dents with little ambition 
and no goals in life that cre- 
ate the problems. 

However, I am especially 
concerned with the students 
who become involved with 
drugs and narcotic addic- 

Current Sauce: How 

would you evaluate the drug 
problem in relation to 

Galloway: We here at 
NSC don't have the prob- 
lems with drugs that exist at 
large universities in metro- 
politan areas. However, 
just because Northwestern 
is a small college in a small 
town, I don't like to see some 
faculty members in effect 
calling the students country 
and backward. 

If they are too high and 
mighty to appreciate teach- 
ing here, they ought to go 

some place better suited to 
their tastes. 

Teachers are here to serve 
and teach the students, not 
to satisfy some egotistical 
drive of their own. 

Current Sauce: Would you 
care to elaborate on the pur- 
pose, organization, and 
activities of the Faculty Sen- 
ate of which you are head? 

Galloway: The Faculty 
Senate is a body created to 
air the problems of the col- 
lege to the administration 
and to keep avenues of 
communication open be- 
tween the administration 
and the faculty. 

Each deparment is repre- 
sented according to the num- 
ber of teachers in the depart- 
ment, similar to the system 
used in the House of Repre- 

This year the Senate is 
looking into the library 
facilities, the operation of 
the bookstore, and how 
faculty members are paid. 

Current Sauce: Could you 
comment on the operation of 
the campus bookstore and 
the situation that exists re- 
garding its policies? 

Galloway: A committee 
within the Faculty Senate 
is still in the process of 
working on the problem. A 
questionaire was sent out to 
the faculty and it got only a 
small return. 

The results will be used to 
come up with a resolution 
that will be presented to the 
administration. I believe 
the administration will take 
a close look at any sugges- 
tions put before it. 

Anyone who is operating 
an enterprise, and its opera- 
tion is being criticized, will 
want to know why. 

Current Sauce: How 
much authority should col- 
lege administrators have 
over faculty members and 

Galloway: Sometimes col- 
lege administrators have 
more authority than they 
exercise, and sometimes 
they try to govern without 
the authority. 

There are a lot of imma- 
ture college teachers on 
every faculty. When they 
get a Ph.D. they seem to 

think they are all-knowing. 
They become authorities on 
every apect of 

As a consequence, we are 
plagued with too many crit- 
ics who very seldom come 
up with any constructive 
criticism. Nor do they have 
the self-discipline to work 
at forming any solutions to 
the problems they are criti- 

As for the relationship be- 
tween the students and the 
administration, I am an 
advocate of students having 
a great deal of comment as 
far as rules and regulations 
governing them are con- 

Also, I think that s,tudents 
need to be treated with digni- 
ty and as if they have some 
intelligence. Many faculty 
members are so critical of 
students that they rob them 
of their confidence. These 
types of people surely 
shouldn't be teaching. 

Current Sauce: Do you 
consider the administration 
of NSC to be moderate or 
excessive in its governing 

Galloway: Adminis- 
trators here don't exercise 
too much authority. I think 
that if all faculty people 
went about doing their jobs 
as best they could, there 
would be no problems. 

All of us occasionally sus- 
pect we are being mal- 
treated. But I have never 
had any one telling me how 
to do my job around here. 

Current Sauce: A moment 
ago you mentioned that stu- 
dents should have a voice in 
making the rules of an insti- 
tution. What is your opinion 
of the attempts of students 
at some colleges and univer- 
sities to have a hand in 
establishing the curriculum 

Galloway: This is ridi- 
culous! Students come to 
college to learn. And so 
they don't really have a 
background of experience 
or knowledge to know what 
subject matter to which they 
should be exposed. This is 
why competent faculty 
member who can relate to 
and enjoy being around stu- 
dents are needed.

Gridders Finish Successful Year 

By Pesky Hill 

Northwestern 's football 
Demons have just com- 
pleted one of their best sea- 
sons in the history of the 

Closing the campaign 
with four straight wins, 
Caoch Glenn Oossett's 
Demons made shambles of 

numerous school records in 
posting a remarkable 7-2 
overall slate. Add to that a 4- 
1 finish in the Gulf States 
Conference, and the Demons 
could have had a league 
championship--but not so. 

In the past decade, the 
GSC winner has won the 
crown six times with a 4-1 
record. But 1969 turned out 
to be the year of Louisiana 
Tech (5-0 and 8-1 overall). 

Still, the '69 Demons be- 
came one of the top teams in 
the last 30 years at North- 
western. Only five times 
has a NSC team equaled or 
bettered the 7-2 mark of this 
year's team since 1940. 

Surprise Seers 

Remarkable is definitely 
the word to describe the '69 
version of the Demons. NSC 
was picked to finish dead 

If you haven't tanen a good look at 
the 1969-70 Northwestern basketball 
schedule, then give it a glance the 
next time you have the chance. On 
the schedule are such names as 
North Texas State, Texas A&M, Rice, 
University of Arkansas, Southern 
Mississippi, Henderson State (Ark.), 
and the University of South Ala- 
bama. Throw in always respectable 
La. College and Centenary, plus the 
extremely balanced Gulf States Con- 
ference competition and you have the 
most formidable list of opponents 
NSC cage squads have ever tried to 
dribble through. 

You can bet this attractive sche- 
dule didn't come by accident. Head 
Coach Tynes Hildebrand was work- 
ing before many of us ever enrolled 
here to insure a schedule that "offers 
better competition and appeal to 
Northwestern fans." 

Take a closer look. North Texas, 
whom the Demons dropped a six- 
point decision to Monday night, is in 
one of the best roundball leagues in 
the country— the Missouri Valley 
Conference-and beat Drake last year 
by 20 points. Incidentally Drake lost 
to Lew Alcindor's UCLA squad last 
year by only two points in the NCAA 
semifinals. Texas A&M is the defend- 
ing Southwest Conference champion 
and Rice and Arkansas are both well 
known SWC schools. Southern 
Mississippi, Henderson, Southern 
Alabama, LC, and Centenary are all 
respected in basketball circles as 
much better than average cage 

There's a good reason for this type 
of schedule as Hildebrand explained, 
"The better schedule you play and 
the tougher the competition, the 
better you get. Name schools mean 
more to the boys. If you just play 
losers in hopes of padding your won- 
lost record, when you get to a big 
game, all you've learned to do from 
the losers is lose." 

Hildebrand has not stopped with 
his progress movement with 1969. 
Among the notables on the list for 
next year are Houston University 
and Tulane. And for 1971-72 the 
Demons cage boss is dickering with 
the University of Nevada at Las 
Vegas and Southern Methodist 
University, plus others to make a 
highly competitive road trip. 

But schedules aren't just thrown 
together on a year by year basis. 
Hildebrand knows he will have to 
play major schools on the road first, 
and in many cases two years away 
before a home contest can be 


Another problem in scheduling 
bigger schools is the attitude of the 
opposition. Big-name institutions 
sometimes feel they have nothing to 
gain if they win against a smaller 
school and everything to lose if they 
are held to a close victory or lose. 

And add to the problems of sche- 
duling nationally known colleges 
and universities the tightness of 
funds that the Demon basketball pro- 
gram operates under. Traveling 
costs money and there just isn't 
enough to provide the kind of opera- 
tion Northwestern wants and de- 

Assistant Coach Don Beasley had 
this to say concerning the stepped up 
program, "Our overall thinking is to 
continually improve the basketball 
operation at Northwestern. The up- 
grading of the schedule is one of the 
means we can accomplish this. 
It gives more motivation to each 
individual and it means more to win 
against the big boys. Also tough 
competition helps prime us for our 
later GSC foes." 

Coach Hildebrand deserves most of 
the credit for our improved program. 
He's a man dedicated 100 percent to 
basketball and its well being at 
Northwestern," Beasley added. 

Yes, it's rare to find a college coach 
willing to possibly sacrifice a couple 
of wins in order to provide better 
competition and basketball action for , 
the fans. Hildebrand puts it in his 
own words, "In some instances we 
are putting our won-loss record aside 
to insure a better schedule and offer 
the kind of basketball that our fans 
want to see us play." 

Both Hildebrand and Beasley are 
the type of coaches that strive to get 
on a personal basis with the players 
and offer help off the court as well as 
on it when needed. And both are firm 
believers in recruiting kids that can 
benefit Northwestern not only on the 
hardwood but also in their actions 
away from the court. 

"It's a two-way street," Hildebrand 
said, "If we can educate our kids in 
basketball and the qualities that 
come with playing organized sports, 
we know Northwestern prepares the 
boys educationally. A good kid all 
the way around usually makes a 
better player and person. And that's 
what we're interested in." 

The last outing of the year during 
the regular football season came out 
at four for five which brought the sea- 
son slate to 38 right, 12 wrong for a 
.760 percentage.

Miller Wins Again; Sets 4 Records 

By Lynn Rollins 

Senior weightlifter Steve 
Miller is leaving his mark 
in the record books this sea- 
son and the latest entry 
came Nov. 29 in the 
State Weight Lifting Meet 
held in Little Rock 

Miller, competing in the 
198-lb. class, totaled 1625 
lbs. with lifts of 425 in the 
bench press, 570 in the 
squat, and 630 in the dead- 
lift. All four of these totals 
were meet records over the 
olds marks of 360, 460, 560, 
and 1380 respectively. 


Steve also won the Most 
Valuable Lifter Award in 
his second straight meet. He 

earned the same honor at 
the Arkansas Jaycee 
Invitational last month and 
set four records in his class 

Chuck Siska, the de- 
fending Arkansas champ- 
ion, placed second with lifts 
of 345, 450, and 560 for a 1355 
lb. total. 

The next meet will be the 

Dec. 20 Christmas Invita- 
tional in New Orleans. Mill- 
er said the competition will 
be much tougher with 
George Logrin of Houston 
providing the biggest chal- 
lenge in the 198-lb. group. 

Representing NSC at the 
meet with Miller will be Bob 
Parker from Lake Arthur 
(165-lb. class) and Loyd 
Scallen from New Orleans 
(148-lb. class).

Gossett had his finest sea-

guiding the Demons to a 6-3 
mark in his initial campaign 
paign (1967). A year ago his 
club posted a 5-4 showing. 

This gives Gossett a

NSC grid mentor. 

Clayton's teams compiled 
a 58-32-2 record from 1957- 
1966 for a .611 winning per- 
centage. The high point of 
his career came in '66 when 
he closed out his tutorship 
by tutoring NSC to a perfect

A lot of people these days are going around 
saying it's only a matter of months until 
Acapulco Gold is available over the counter in 
menthol and king-size lengths. 

Which is an indication of how little people 
know about marihuana. The real fact of the 
matter is that marihuana is a drug. Like all 
drugs, it affects the human body and the human 
brain. Like all drugs, it has side effects. 

Today, research scientists are studying 
marihuana's effects on the brain, the nervous 
system, on chromosomes, and on various organs 
of the body. They 're trying to find out why 
different people have different reactions to it. 

They're studying its effects after one or two 
cigarettes, and they're trying to find out what 
happens with long term use. 

Maybe it will turn out that there's no reason 
for it to be illegal. But nobody can be sure until 
all the facts are in. And until they all are, it's a 
pretty bum risk.

NSC Gymnastic Team^ 
Shooting For 5th 

I was slipping through the 
woods when the form of a 
deer appeared about fifty 
yards away. Upon getting 
closer, I could tell it was a 
doe. I stepped behind a tree to 
wait for the buck I hoped 
was following her when 
several deer snorted behind 
me. I whirled around and 
saw a buck standing about 
40 yards from me. He drop- 
ped on the first shot. 

I opened the deer season 
in Mississippi and managed 
to kill a five point buck on 
the last hunt of the trip. The 
deer had a small rack, typi- 
cal of deer on overcrowded 
ranges. Some places in 
Louisiana have this pro- 
blem which is usually the 
result of having "bucks 
only" seasons for several 
years. In Tensas and Madi- 
son parishes the problem 
has been intensified by the 
planting of massive tracts 
of land in soybeans, thus 
decreasing the amount of 
woods for deer to live in. 

A student at NSC told me 
he was hunting squirrels 
when he saw a buck stand- 
ing 75 yards from him. He 
actually shot at the deer 
with squirrel shot at 75 
yards! That's a long shot 
even with buckshot. Squir- 
shot will kill a buck at 
i or 15 yards, but at 75 all 
it might do is blind the deer. 
Use some restraint, no mat- 
ter how great the tempta- 
tion, and take a couple of 
loads of buckshot next time.

have been held in some 

Northwest states. I feel sure 
that skybusting would be 
virtually eliminated if a 
three-shot volley would be 
about a third of your shoot- 
ing for the day. 
Sometimes people tell me 

they don't know anywhere 
to hunt because they're not 
from around here. Most 
land in central and west 
Louisiana owned by timber 
companies is open to hunt- 
ing, and there are also some 
game management areas

A ring of posters around a 
man's property doesn't 
necessarily mean he's 
opposed to hunting, or to 
use of his land in other 
ways. It means he's had 
some unpleasant experi- 
ences with irresponsible 
people, experiences which 
have cost him money and 
given him cause for 
concern. His only solution 
is to keep them out. 

Those signs you see are 
not the final word in most 
cases, however. Try driving 
into the yard the next time 
you see posted land you 
want to hunt. Knock on the 
door, introduce yourself and 
ask for permission to hunt.

so much for your hunting 

You'll discover he's not 
the bad guy you thought he 
was, but first you'll have to 
show him that you're a good 
guy, too. It works both 
ways. All he needs to know 
is that you recognize the 
land is his, not yours, that 
you are man enough to ask 
for permission to use it, and 
that you abide by the rules. 

Show a little courtesy to 
the landowner and you will 
often discover that the "No 
Trespassing" signs are for 
someone else, not you. And 
if enough sportsmen are 
willing to face the land- 
owner on a man-to-man ba- 
sis, perhaps the signs even- 
tually will come down. 

Courtesy is the key to a 
sportsman-landowner rela- 
tionship which continues to 
grow more strained.

you consider that he owns 
the land and you are merely

I have done this and some- 
times it works while other 
times it doesn't. Remember 
that it's the landowner's op-

Choosing Is A Difficult Thing 
With A Choice Of These Two 

At The Cane 

Romeo and Juliet, proclai- 
med to be one of the greatest 
films of our times, is co- 
ming to the Cane Theatre on 
Friday, Dec. 5. The movie 
tells the age-old story of a 
young couple in love. 

The scene is Italy in the 
early Renaissance period. 
The Montagues and the 
Capulets are deadly 
enemies. At a ball the Capu- 
lets plan to announce the 
wedding of their young 
daughter to Count Paris. 
Romeo, a Montague and 
Juliet, a Capulet, meet in the 
garden at the party and it is 
love at first sight, but nei- 
ther realizes that they are 
actually enemies. That 
night Romeo goes back to 
the garden and he and Juliet 
plan to be married. 

After the marriage the 
young couple part and her 
parents announce that 
Juliet will marry Count 
Paris. Juliet runs to her 
friend Friar Laurence who 
gives her a potion to make 
her appear to be dead. 
Romeo, who knows nothing 
of the plan, finds her in the 
tomb and thinking she is 
dead kills himself. When 
she awakes, she finds 
Romeo dead and kills her- 
self also. In the end the two 
families are united and bury 
their dead children together. 

The original play of 
Romeo and Juliet was writ- 
ten by William Shake- 
speare, but is as great as 
ever now. The movie will 
continue through Thursday 
Dec. It

The story line starts when 
Voight decides leave Texas 
and seek his fortune as a 
stud (a hustler, a man who 
sells his body to anyone 
who pays the price) in New 

Soon after his arrival he 
picks up a girl on Park Ave- 
nue and they make love. 
After she pays him, he goes 
to a bar where he meets 
Dustin Hoffman who agrees 
to manage his career as a 
stud. Voight blows two 
opportunities to get his 
start and Hoffman gets sick 
and tells Voight his only 
hope is to get to Florida. 

Voight then picks up a 
man who decides he doesn't 
want to make love to Voight 
after all. Voight kills the 
man and takes his money, 
buys clothes for himself and 
Hoffman, and both get on a 
bus headed for Florida. On 
the way Hoffman dies and it 
is on the bus that Voight rea- 
lizes that he is in love with 


Midnight Cowboy is a suc-

Meet The Press 

Contest Sponsored 
li\ Student L nion 

The rough etchings were 
already visible on the panes 
last weekend, prophesying 
a hint of the artistic talent 
NSC planned to unleash on 
the school for campus 
organizations' competition 
in the Student Union spon- 
sored annual Christmas 
window-painting contest 
this week. 

All campus organizations 
were invited to participate 
in the contest at the begin- 
ning of November and lots 
were drawn for window 
assignments, according to 
Fine Arts Committee Chair- 
man Paul Bennett. The win- 
dows must be completed by 
a set deadline. 

Judging of the pictures 
will take place on Friday, 
Dec. 5, and first, second, and 
third place winners will be 
awarded plaques. A plaque 
commemorating the first 
place winner will be placed 
in the Student Union until 
the winner of next year's 
contest is announced. 

Bennett evaluates the 
worth of the contest like 
this: "It brings out the best 
in some of the organizations 
and kids that aren't always 
in the spotlight play an 
important part. Besides, 
nothing looks more cheery 
and Christmasy than really 
good art work like the kids 
are turning out. It adds a 
real note of season spirit 
that we can all really use." 

UNUSUAL STUDENT - Ben Price, who has 
traveled extensively overseas, is pictured here 
with fencing equipment. Ben, now 18, is a 
freshman history major at NSC and is a qualified 
fencing and ski instructor. His mother, Kathryn 
Price, graduated from NSC in 1938.

"The best way to get ac- 
quainted with the Romans 
is simply to reach for your 
wallet and shake hands with 
them," says Northwestern 
State College Freshman, 
Ben Price. 

Ben, a young man with a 
sharp sense of humor and a 
knack for getting to know 
people, is probably one of 
the few freshmen who would 
rather be back in high 
school. Why? Because Ben, 
now 18, spent his last 12 
years living overseas. In 
those 12 years he has trav- 
eled in England, Germany, 
Australia, Sweden, Greece, 
France, Scotland, and Swit- 

The opportunity to travel 
was provided for Ben by 
Standard Oil Company of 
New Jersey, who employs 
his father as a glove-hop- 
ping trouble shooter. Louis 
Price's job is to find prob- 
lems in oil refineries and to 
start the refineries. The 
Prices are now residing in 

Never let it be said that 
Ben let his spare time go to 
waste. He says. "I have seen 
all of the continent from the 
slopes of the Alps to the in- 
side of the Athens jail." 
While on holiday, Ben also 
learned to ski very well and 
is probably one of the few 
qualified ski instructors on 
3ampus. He worked on the 
ski patrol in Switzerland. 
Besides skiing, Ben is also a 
qualified fencing instructor. 
He took two years of fenc- 
ing at school where his first 
instructor was Winthrop 
Rockefeller, son of the gov- 

Ben went to schools in 
Athens and Thessalonica, 
Greece and attended the Ley- 
sin American School in Ley- 
sin, Switzerland his junior 
and senior years. The town 
is located on a mountain 
about 1800 feet high.

jects were a lot on the col- 
lege level and most of the

Festival Is Here Again 
With Many Features 


By Molly Chance y 

Sharpen your senses, 
jjSC, for tomorrow night the 
yearly flush of electric color 
,ffill explode the inky dark- 
pess of the sky and trans- 
form the Natchitoches river- 
front into a fairyland of 
Kaleidoscope color. It's 
Christmas Festival time 


For years, the city and 
college alike have boasted 
ft bout. looked forward to, 
and participated vigorously 
in the fantastic Festival, 
#hich attracts spectators 
from a considerable range 
of cities and states. A grea- 
ter crowd than ever is expec- 
ted for this year's festi- 
vities, and activity -plan- 
ning committees are more 
than ready and able to acco- 
modate them in a flux of 
parading, entertaining, and 
spreading of Christmas 

Indeed, there is much ado 
about something for every- 
one on the roll of Festival 
events. Tonight, a Christ- 
mas dance in the Student 
Union featuring John Fred 
and the Playboy Band, as 
well as a concert at the NSC 
pine Arts Auditorium at 8 
P.M. will be featured acti- 
vities. Saturday will usher 
the celebrations in with 
music by various church 
choirs at the First Baptist 
Church on Second Street 
from 10 a.m. until noon. 

The Christmas Parade at 2 
p.m. will journey from NSC 
to the shopping centers in 
East Natchitoches where 

featured entertainers, inclu- 
ding twirling squads and 
several bands, will perform. 
Official fireworks and light- 
ing festivities will begin at 7 
p.m., followed by an 8 p.m. 
show by the Platters, fourth 
in a host of NSC Big Name 
Entertainment highlights. 

Specialty of the night, of 
course, will be the elaborate 
fireworks show and the 
breath-taking lighting 
arrangement, which the city 
has been building to and 
adding on since the Festival 
began many years ago. The 
lights are designed to por- 
tray Natchitoches's claim to 
being the first settlement in 
the Louisiana Purchase, tra- 
cing in electric color such 
events as LaSalle's historic 
journey along the Mississi- 
ppi River, and such noble 
symbols as the American 
flag and the Nativity Scene 
characterized in stunning 
color and design. 

More important than the 
schedule of events, though, 
is the mood of the day. From 
couples lounging on blan- 
kets in the frosty night air to 
bad little boys pasting cot- 
ton candy in big sister's 
hair, the people are united 
in a common happiness and 
a common peace. Christ- 
mas carols float across the 
river, lovers hold hands, 
and the water reflects a 
glory of color and light that 
can never be bright enough 
to mirror the spirit of the 

So sharpen your senses, 
NSC — Christmas is nigh!

Sigma Kappa will be well 
represented at the Winter 
Ball. Five members were 
chosen to be on the court - 
Janet Churchman (Queen), 
Norma Oliver, Linda Sepul- 
vado, and Theresa Lom- 
bardino. Everyone is 
encouraged to attend. 

Sigma Kappa held a Barn 
Dance November 22 in the 
ballroom of the Student 
Union. The room was 
decorated to fit the theme 
and the atmosphere was car- 
ried out with hay, iron pots, 
plows, scarecrows, and a 
"barny" air. Everyone had a 
great time, resulting in a 
successful event. 

Sigma Kappas are now 
planning for the Spring For- ■ 
mal, along with various 
Christmas activities. 


Work began last week to 
remodel and furnish the 
Kappa Sigma House. Plans 
call for adding bathroom 
facilities, enlarging the kit- 
chen, painting and furn- 
ishing the rooms, and pre- 
paring a house director's 
residence. Work on the 
House should extend 
through the Christmas holi- 
days and be ready for occu- 
pancy by next semester if 
not before.

was held prior to the 
Thanksgiving holidays. 
Those elected were: Grand

TheTri Sigmas celebrated 
Thanksgiving this year by 
donating a basket of food to 

a needy family. During the 
holidays we sold tupper- 
ware as a project to raise 
money for the Spring For- 

This week we are all 
taking the annual chapter

This is the year of the boot— the Florsheim boot. A rich, 
very soft cut of calfskin riding high up above the ankle 
with plenty of eye interest on the vamp. Once a boot was 
avant garde, now it's a staple in the wardrobe of millions 
of men who know what's happening. Florsheim makes a 
lot of boots— different heights, different styling, different 
leathers and colors. There's at least one Florsheim boot 
that'll do a lo^pr you— and for quite a while. 


Kappa Iota Chapter of Phi

by Mrs. Jake Haxthausen, 
Psi District Collegiate 
Director on November 19-21. 
During Mrs. Haxthausen's

her individually and she 
also attended a pledge meet- 

The Phi Mu's sent the foot- 
ball team a lengthy tele- 
gram to demonstrate our 
continuous support 
throughout the last week of 
the football season. 

The pledges have been 
busily working on one of 
their many pledge projects 
which is a Phi Mu Directory 
for each of the Phi Mu's. 
Thanksgiving tray favors 
were, also, made for all of 
the residents of the Nursing

As one of our service pro- 
jects this year. Phi Mu has 
been helping Mrs. Jack 
Britain with her Girl Scout 
Troop. Each Tuesday after- 
noon a couple of the Phi Mus 
attend the Girl Scout meet- 
ing and help with their pro- 
gram, handicrafts, and 
entertainment. One week 
the Phi Mu s entertained 
them with a party and the 
Phi Mu Washtub Band. 
Christmas activities are 
now being planned for the 
Girl Scouts. 


The pledge class gave the 
active chapter a surprise 
pledge show last week 
which turned out to be very 
cultural. The active chapter 
congratulates the pledge 
class. The TKE pledge class 
will also have a booth on 
front street during the 
Christmas Festival. 

The TKE Santa Claus will 
begin visits soon to the local 
hospitals and orphan's 
homes in Natchitoches, 
Shreveport, and Alexan-

given to the children. 

Frater Maniscalco recei-

congratulate him on a job 
well done. Frater Manis- 
calco also visited the Cente-

the Thanksgiving holidays. 
Many activities have been 
planned between the two 
chapters for the coming 
Spring semester. We are 
really looking forward to 
these events.

21 Students Working 
Toward Doctorates 

By Betty Dennis 

Dr. T. P. Southerland 
dean of the School of Educa- 
tion, reported recently that 
21 students working toward 
a doctorate in education are 
now enrolled in the Gradu- 
ate School. 

This is Northwestern's 
second year to offer its doc- 
torate program of educa- 
tion. The program opened 
in the fall semester of 1968. 
To date 50 different indivi- 
duals have been enrolled in 

The State Board of 
Education authorized the 
college to offer this pro- 
gram in December, 1967. In 
the spring of 1968, North- 
western began developing 
its doctorate program. A 
committee from the 
Southern Association of 
Colleges and Secondary 
Schools visited North- 
western in the summer of 

The committee recom- 
mended to the College 
Commission of SACSS that 
Northwestern be authorized 
to offer the degrees of Doc- 
tor of Education and Doctor 
of Philosophy in Education. 
As a result of this NSC now 
offers these degrees in three 
areas: Doctor of Education 
in elementary education, 
secon-dary education, and 
health and physical educa- 
tion; Doctor of Philosophy 
in Education in health and 
physical education. 

Prior to this LSU was the 
only college in the state 
which offered a doctorate's 
program. Many people felt 
that another college should 
offer the program. 

Northwestern was. the 
logical choice since it was 
the original teacher college 
and among the top three col- 

leges in the state in the pro- 
duction of teachers. Its 
undergraduate School of 
Education is the largest on 
campus as is its Graduate 
School. One-thousand- 
three-hundred graduate stu- 
dents in education were en- 
rolled here in one summer 

In order to be eligible for 
the doctorate's program, a 
candidate must: have a min- 
imum of 90 hours beyond 
his B . S . , pass the Graduate 
Record Examination, have 
at least 12 hours of research, 
and be proficient in English. 

Dr. Southerland said that 
they hope to offer more de- 
grees as the program pro- 
gresses. He .said, "We feel 
that we have a real chal- 
lenging program," and 
added that a person with a 
doctorate's degree in educa- 
tion from Northwestern 
should be able to teach 
anywhere in the United St-

In long-term activities, 
the chapter at Northwestern 
is finishing plans for their 
on-campus house. The chap- 
ter is moving according to 
plans, and will be under con- 
struction sometime next 



If the enemy was at the city 
Rates, or some major disaster 
inspired the help of every man, 
woman and child for survival, 
thousands on relief would 
shoulder their share without 
question. Consequently, is it 
not the tu (it nc y which is lack- 
ing? If the money was ex- 
hausted, many would set about 
finding a substitute such as 
part-time work. But the proof 
of success will be putting peo- 
ple to work, as President Nixon 
emphasized in his welfare mes- 
sage. If the concept is promoted 
with rise same stress that at- 
tends a crisis, we may be 
surprised at the results in 
diminishing relief rolls and in- 
cmising payrolls. This is the 
only enduring solution.

As I See It 

tions, consider these facts: The Sauce needs more 
staff members; the staff members need more 
money; and the students, we think, need a still 
better Current Sauce. If you agree, then show it 

Another fact to consider is that the increase will 
not affect the fees students pay at registration, for 
the funds for this increase are already available. 
Letters To The Editor 

Students often complain that the letters to the 
editor we print from time to time represent a 
narrow point of view from the noisy minority. The 
only answer we can give is that these are the only 
letters we receive, and I have yet to refuse to print a 
letter chich was reasonably written, signed, and 
supplied with an address. 

If you care, then write, and it wiU be printed!

Mrs. Gloria Dunbar, libra- 
rian of Pineville Elementary

Mrs. Dunbar said the award 
is not made annually but only 
on special occasions when the 
association desires to recog- 
nize special contributions to the 
support of the school library 

program by Louisiana educa- 

Southerland was cited for his 
work to establish centralized 
libraries in the elementary 
schools of Louisiana, and 
especially for his work in Ra- 
pides Parish, where he served 
as assitant superintendent be-

leadership, was one of the first 
parishes in the state to possess 
a centralized library in every 
elementary and secondary

also chairman of the section 
on Instructional Materials of 
the Committee of 100 that stu- 
died the needs of education in 
Louisiana. His committee made 
extensive recommendations for

What Do You Think 

By Niva Chavez 

NSC students, this week, were asked to express 
their opinions of the editorial page of the Current 
S auce,, Their replies were as follows: 
'"""Well, I feel that the things the editor puts on 
fhe editorial page are things that should not be part 
f the daily news. For example, in the recent issue 
fhe editor put things in his editorial which should 
have been more of an explanatory feature, rather 
than an editorial. I feel that an editorial is a gift 
to the editor and he should use it to bring out more 

Important things than explaining news." Gene 

Thompson, Georgetown. 

"In. last week's issue the article, 'Fines Too Fre- 
quent Here', was a good article, but they should 
support the Campus Security because they are doing 
o darned good job. 'Speaking Out' was a very good 
article. 'The Doctor's Bag' shouldn't have been on 
the editorial page. The article 'Coed Views Lotte-

was too vague. The writer didn't give the reas- 
on why she was against it. 

The school drastically needs spirit. The newspa- 
per needs to print something to get on to the stud- 
ents for not participating in school activities." 

Willard Taylor, Rocky Mount. 

"They are doing a very good job through the ed- 
itorials. They are improving the school and are 
making people more aware of the changes that need 
to be made and changes that have been made. The 
Current Sauce can be improved only by continuing 
the services it is now rendering and expanding them 
at as fast a rate as possible. I would like to see the 
editorials lengthened, covering more areas than it 

covers now." Tim Lemonie, Mansura. 

"I don't think it needs improvement at all. I es- 
pecially liked the editorial on the change of Fri- 
day night curfew for the girls." Annette Pro- 

thro, Allen. 

"Well, I think it's a very good page. I think the 
editors are doing a good job. If the students are a- 
gainst what the editors say, they should be able to 
have it printed." Tommy Worsham, Campti. 

"I think it's bad. Some things don't make sense. 
Some aren't of much value. The editorial on drink- 
ing at football games was ridiculous. It was just 
trying to draw a public apology. It didn't need to 
be publicized. It was a good la ugh .You could have 

drawn a good cartoon on it. " Mike Landry, E- 


"An editorial page should have all editorials. I 
don't see that the SGA news couldn't be placed 
elsewhere. There are very controversial issues a- 
round this campus and in the world. Why can't the 
page be totally devoted to these issues? For exam- 
>le, this lottery system. The pros and cons should 
lave been examined more thoroughly. I know they 
lad a little article on Vietnam, but they should 
rave devoted more space to it. The editorial page 
is just a waste of time. I think that people other 
than the editors should write the editorials, too." 
— Brian Holoubek, Shreveport.

A Look At SGA 

By Henry Burns 
The SGA of Northwestern 
nay lack some of the luster 
of the past administration as 
it fought the disruption of the 
college by a faction of stude-

Mion for reforms of student

this type is not initiated on

Momentum is gaining in the 
framework of SGA this year, 
'specially in the realm of

ificant to many students.

Dear Sir, 

On the front page of the Cur- 
rent Sauce of Dec. 5 there 
was an article concerning the 
discontinuation of the S.G.A. 
loan fund because of the fail- 
ure of over 200 students to 
pay past due loan notes. The 
article went on to say that 
names of the students owing 
money would be printed the 
following week. 

This student believes that 
although this method would pro- 
bably intimidate enough stu- 
dents, it is not within the power 
of the editor of a newspaper to 
take over the job of the ad- 
ministration and the Student 
Loan Committee, and is also 
not in the mainstream of good 
journalism ethics. 

The job of a newspaper is 
not to threaten but to print 
"all the news that is fit to 
print" and loans being of a 
confidential nature (or at lea- 
st they should be) should not 
be a matter of public record. 

It would seem that if the edi- 
tor would concern himself with 
his duties he would be able to 
put out a newspaper that would 
not have to resort to filling 
up the paper with pictures that 
have no meaning (such as on 
page two of last week's Cur- 
rent Sauce). I am not asking 
too much. Just try to become 
fairly competent at your job 

before- you attempt to do other 
people's work. 
Jack Hoffstadt 
108 Bossier Hall 

Dear Editor, 

As most everyone is aware 
of by now, women's hours 
have taken a change for the 
better. Early this month the 
Friday night curfew was lift- 
ed from 12 midnight to 1 a.m. 
Since this was definitely a 
change worth fighting for, I 
think it is in order to openly 
congratulate the people dir- 
ectly responsible for it. 

David Morgan (Freshmai 
Class vice president) first 
made the proposal and there- 
fore , first faced the oppo- 
sition it produced. But he, with 
the help of Lynda Henderson 
(AWS president), met this oppo- 
sition head on and eventually 
won. True, Mr. Morgan could 
not have done this job without 
the help of Miss Henderson, 
but it is still a tribute to him, 
and if I may be so general, 
the whole freshman class. 

It might be added here, too, 
that while the changing of wo- 
men's hours isn't of utmost im- 
portance (in respect to some 
other much needed changes at 
Northwestern), it is an accom- 
plishment. And who knows? 
This may only be the begin- 
ning. I can not help but hope

For What It's Worth 

By Alan Theriault 

PROGRESS--that's not too big a word, is it? Is it too much 
to ask that Northwestern State College take on a little more 
progress of its own? I am speaking not of progress in t he se nse 
of modernization of it's facilities, but more in the sense of 
modernization of its attitudes. 

I am speaking specifically of the "no-no" of drinking. Al- 
though drinking is socially acceptable, it is strictly forbidden 
on this college campus. 

Beer is sold in the student union at LSU, but if you are caught 
with a beer on the Northwestern campus, you are likelv to face 
possible dismissal from college. Fraternities and sororities 
are the main social components of this campus. Even they 
are not allowed to drink at their parties. 

Although it seems to me very ridiculous to say that they 
don't drink, it seems even more ridiculous and very hypocri- 
tical to say that if they want to drink, they have to hide it. 

What about the students who don't belong to a sorority or 
fraternity and wish to have some kind of life? Let's 
face it, the only night spot Natchitoches has to offer is the 
Riverfront, which has about as much social climate as Ant- 

What I am leading up to are a couple of proposals. First, 
allow open drinking at all fraternity, sorority, or other approv- 
ed social gatherings or parties. 

Second, open a "pub" or "tavern" where other students 
and even faculty members can bring dates or wives on campus 
to drink. 

I don't think these proposals are too far-fetched. They 
have worked on numerous campuses across the nation, so there's 
no reason why they couldn't work here. Besides, think of the 
additional revenue that can be acquired by the college if it decides 
to operate such a place. This way, money will be coming to 
the college instead of going to privately-owned businesses. 

Realizing that the second proposal to open some sort of 
"club" (perhaps along the lines of the "Rathskellers" of Tu- 
lane, and other schools) would have to be approved by the 
State, Board of Education, the movement has to start at the 
grass roots. And we, fellow students ARE the grass roots. 

In regard to the first idea, namely that social groups should 
be allowed to carry on open drinking at off- campus parties, this 
can be easily attained through our own college officials and the 
Inter- Fraternity Council, and the Student Government Association, 
i Let's face it: drinking exists, so why be hypocritical about 

By David Precht 
My Apologies 

The time-weary rationalization, "everyone makes mistakes" 
doesn't seem to be accepted as being part of a newspaper editor's 
vocabulary, and understandably so. Therefore, the only avenue 
left open to me is to clarify these errors. Witness last week's 
issue of the Current Sauce. 

Several significant errors lurked within those pages, most 
of which can be explained by the fact that under this new system 
of publishing this newspaper, mistakes like these are bound to 
happen. The only surprising thing is that they did not occur 
in any abundance in previous issues. 

As stated in the Nov. 14 issue, the Current Sauce is now 
being composed and published through the Natchitoches Times. 
Because of class and other conflicts, the editors are not always 
able to be present when the pages are being composed; there- 
fore, sometimes picture captions, and selection of articles 
are not always the most desirable for the editors as well as 
the students. In the future, this situation will be overcome. 

One area, however, which can not be "passed off" is in 
an editorial printed last week entitled, "Fines Too Frequent 
Here." Car registration fees are $2.50, rather than $3, as 
mentioned in the editorial. And, according to Campus Security 
Chief Lee, there has been a reduction in the number of parking 
tickets issued in recent weeks. 

Outstanding Loans 

Last week, the Current Sauce printed an article on the front 
page with the heading , "SGA Loan Fund Is Discontinued." 
As you will note in the article and in the letter to the editor 
on this page by Mr. Hoffstadt, it was stated that a list of the 
names who had not paid their debts would be printed in this 

Mr. Hoffstadt declares that". . .this method would probably 
intimidate enough students, " which is true. But it is also 
true that it is not necessary to fuffill the threat included in 
that article in order to "intimidate" some students to pay 
off their loans (as it seems there is no other way to get them 
to pay up). 

Prior to the publication of the article, we, the staff, were 
well aware of the libelous and other implications such an 
action as printing those names would involve. However, we 
were optimistic of the effects of printing the "threat." 

Realizing perhaps, that such an action might not be listed 
among the "Canons of Good Journalism," we feel it maybe 
justified as being in the best interest of the majority of stu- 
dents who pay their debts promptly and find the availability 
of these loans advantageous. Why must we be condemned for 
seeking to protect the welfare of the average student? 

A Matter Of Opinion 

Perhaps it should be pointed out that opinion matter printed 
on -this page not authored by staff members of the Current 
Sauce does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the staff. 

Consequently, views expressed by the editors or other staff 
members do not necessarily reflect the positions of the faculty, 
administration, or the student body of Northwestern State College 

Several students are given the opportunity to express their 
viewpoints as regular columnists in the Current Sauce in order 
to gain a broader outlook on this editorial page. 

In addition, in a regular feature initiated by this staff a few 
weeks ago, some non- student is interviewed by various staff 
members on a subject or subjects of which he is knowledgeable 
(SPEAKING OUT). This too, is done in an effort to bring out sides of different issues than you would see were the 
editorial page the entire responsibility of the staff. 

That, exactly, is our purpose in printing this editorial page, 
and should opinions expressed by us or others enable our 
readers to form intelligent, reasonable attitudes, then we will 
have been successful. 


Campus Security Chief Explains Force 

James K. Lee 

By David Precht 

Few other offices on campus 
draw more criticism, particu- 
larly from this editorial staff, 
than that of the Campus Se- 
curity. Therefore, this inter- 
view was made in an effort 
to clarify or support the argu- 
ments against it. 

NSC Campus Security Chief 
James K. Lee was born in Mel- 
rose and graduated from St. Ma- 
ry's High School here in Natchi- 
toches. After obtaining a degree 
from Northwestern, Lee enter- 
ed the Army, and is still an 
active member of the Army 

He is also state director 
of the NCO Academy, which 
trains selected persons to be 
sergeants. In addition, Lee 
is a past president of the Jay- 
cees, past Grand Knight of the 
Knights of Columbus, first di- 
rector of the local CYO athle- 
tic program, and % member of 
the Board of Directors of the 
National Association of College 
and University Traffic and Se- 
curity Directors. 

His wife, Jeannette, obtain- 
ed her Master's Degree from 
NSC and is teaching in the Nat- 
chitoches Parish school sys- 
tem. They have five children- 
Current Sauce: Most every- 
one will agree that there is a 
definite traffic problem on the 
Northwestern campus. What 
exactly is your department do- 
ing about it? 

Lee: One of the things we 
are doing is having personal 
interviews with people who have 
repeated violations. I might 
add that there has been less in- 
tra- campus traffic lately. I 
base this on the weather, and 
increased enforcement at the 
first of the year. 

Current Sauce: In regard 
to increased enforcement, ap- 
proximately how many tickets 
are given out each day? 

«e: At the beginning of the 

semester, we were writing out 
400 tickets per day on week- 
days. This number has drop- 
ped to less than 200 in recent 
weeks for a 24-hour period. 
About 25-40 tickets are given 
during the daytime hours. 

Current Sauce: What hap- 
pens to the revenue from these 
parking tickets? 

Lee.- The money is turned 
into the cashier's office where 
I think it goes into the campus 
operation fund, but I don't know 
what happens to it then. 

Current Sauce : What is the 
car registration fee used for? 

Lee; That money goes into 
a similar fund- -in fact, I 
think it is the same one. Our 
appropriations are given to us 
as strictly budgeted items. We ' 
are given only what is in the 
state budget. I can't go out 
and say, "Lookboys, let'swrite 
an extra 50 tickets today so we 
can get more money." 

Current Sauce: Do you see 
any future measures perhaps 
to be taken to curb our traf- 
fic problem? 

Lee ; One thing we might 
go to is perhaps to make this 
Sam Sibley Dr. one-way tra- 
veling_west. This might help 
because this street is fast be- 
coming the center of the cam- 
pus. Perhaps, also, a dead end 
by the infirmary would help 
solve the problem with the high 
school traffic. 

Current Sauce: Don't you 
think this would only move our 
traffic problem off campus and 
on to College Ave., where thre 

is already some difficulty? 

Lee : No, College Ave. has 
now been widened and arrang- 
ed to handle more traffic. I 
would like to see some left- 
turn arrow devices placed on 
those off- campus traffic lights, 
by the way. Other plans we have 
include making Caldwell Ave. 
one-way coming on to campus. 
Then the pedestrian will know 

which way the traffic will be 
flowing, and it will be far saf- 

I would also like to see the 
drive between Caldwell Hall 
and the Armory widened to sup- 
port two-way traffic. 

Current Sauce; Last Feb- 
ruary, the Campus Security 
force played a large role in 
the investigations leading to the 
arrest of more than a score 
of students on various drug ch- 
arges. Do you think the pro- 
blem has reached any* signifi- 
cant proportions at this time? 

Lee : I'll say this, we're 
always on the guard--alert and 
working with various depart- 
ments, individuals, and outside 
agencies. We have every rea- 
son to believe at this time that 
we are free of this problem. 
We're hoping that we really 
are in this situation. How- 
ever, we're still always on the 

Current Sauce: How would 
you compare the "crime rate" 
at Northwestern to that of other 
campuses in the state and 

Lee: Our crime rate is very 
low in comparison. In that, 
we are exceptionally fortunate. 

Current Sauce : What should 
a student do when he feels he 
has been unjustly given a tic- 
ket either for parking or for 
a moving violation? 

Lee : I would encourage him 
to come to see me, and in 
to come to see me, and in a 
moving violation he has his 
"say in court." Officers can 
only charge you--they can't find 
you guilty or in any other way 
pass judgment. 

Current Sauce : How many 
men are employed by the Cam- 
pus Security office? What are 
their qualifications? 

Lee : We have eight full- 
time officers, with five work- 
ing part-time. Our main 
people here are students, and 

has been that way for years. 
Other schools are constantly 
calling me, asking about our 
set up. Students seem to have 
a good rapport with the other 

Campus Security officers 
must pass Civil Service 
competitive examination re- 
quirements which require a 
knowledge of law, leadership, 
and human behavior. Each man 
attends some of the various 
training programs at LSU and 
other places. Several have 
completed police training in 
the army or air force. 

Current Sauce: In the panty 
raids of a month ago, it was 
reported that Campus Securi- 
ty officers present allowed the 
disturbance to get completely 
out of proportion. What guide- 
lines did they follow and why? 

Lee: They were going under 
the premise that as long as 
the people were not being vio- 
lent or destroying anything, then 
they have a Constitutional right 
they have a Constitutional 
right to demonstrate. One of 
our problems was that we got 
out information a little late. 
We got caught off guard when 
the main body of the group 
was concentrated in one area 
of the campus while a hand- 
ful went back to Caddo Hall 
and began the looting. They 
pulled one on us that time... 
I'll admit that. But it would 
be bad for them if it happen- 
ed again. 

We did alert outside autho- 
rities, but we didn't call them 
in because we were afraid an 
over- show of force might turn 
it into a full-scale riot. We 
now have definite plans, though, 
that we can initiate immedi- 
ately should it ever occur a- 
gain. I hope it doesn't.

NSC 'Blown' Out Of Texas 

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. In 
fact I saw six of them on the recent Texas 
basketball trip that found the Demons sliding 
down the chimneys of Texas A&M, Rice, 
and North Texas State as presents, compli- 
ments of Santa Claus. 

On this six- day, three- game road trip, the 
Demons were actually blown out of Texas. 
Yes that's right, blown out of Texas. But 
not on the scoreboard. The referees (?) 
seemed to have decided to win over North- 
western would make a nice Christmas pre- 
sent and blew their whistles so much I thought 
the gums would rise off the ground from the 
hot air. 

But maybe they had an excuse. After all, 
/ou can't expect a man no telling how old, 
with a pot belly, and a beard that keeps fly- 
ing up in his face and obstructing his vision, 
to hustle up and down the court for 40 
minutes. A man in that condition has to stop 
to catch his breath and the best way is to 
blow his whistle. Somebody put in the rule 
books that when the whistle is blown the 
game stops. 

Now the refs had a choice of which team 
to penalize but they still had to get up the 
chimney and wanted to find their reindeer 
when they got there. So they tooted away, 
calling fouls(?) that didn't amount to as much 
contact as a snowflake falling on the North 

Coach Tynes Hildebrand told me after the 
\ggie win that we almost got "whistled" 
out of the ball game and that he hoped the 
officiating would be better on the remainder of 
the trip. His hopes were dashed. 

Take the case of the technical foul called 
that wasn't a technical or, the ref overuling 
the official scorer. It happened with three 
seconds left at Rice, NSC was down by two, 
and the Demons' Doug Watts started signaling 
for a timeout. 

There was one hitch. Northwestern didn't 
have another time out and calling one brings 
an automatic technical foul. 

Johnny Janese already had the ball and was 
looking down court for someone to throw 
l o with time running out when the ref gave 
NSC their sixth time out. 

At this point Hildebrand started a defense 
case that would have put Perry Mason to 
shame. I won't go into the details but the 
main point was that Hildebrand contested that 
his club had not called a time out and fur- 
thermore he had not been properly notified 
as to how many time outs he had left. 

He won the case and the refs overuled the 
official scorer on the grounds that the Purple 
and White should have been warned that they 
didn't Live any rest periods left or at least 
been told when they had only one left. The 
technical was disallowed. 

The next day in the Houston papers, Hilde- 
brand was quoted as saying something to the 
effect that that game was the first time he 
had seen one of his teams actually lose on 
account of the whistle blowing. 

Hildebrand wasn't beefing about the con- 

troversy at the end of the game but the down 
right poor calling and positions the refs 
had to make judgment decisions. But he 
was still amazed at how the official could 
just overide the decision of the official scorer. 

Now the stage is set and we get to the 
real crusher. To call the officials "homers" 
at East Texas State might be a little strong 
but I noticed they had that instinct on where 
to go after the game, sort of like that pigeon. 

I don't like to criticize the officials in 
any sport. They for the most part do an 
outstanding job and are trained to "call 
'em as they see 'em." But when Byron 
Nelson, sports editor of the university paper 
East Texan, tells me after the game that 
he felt sorry for Northwestern for the way 
it was rooked out of a game, I can't help 
but wonder where those two at East Texas 
were accredited. 

Northwestern was whistled down 30 times, 
some of them on the most knitpicking things 
you will ever see. After the ETSU coach 
racked up his second technical you could 
tell it was going to be one those nights and 
Hildebrand, seeing his team get fouls called 
on them that were consistently the most ab- 
surd calls I have ever seen, resigned himself 
to the fact that nobody could do anything about 
it. At times you could even here laughs 
coming from the stands on some of the fouls. 

Just as an after thought the Demons lost 
at the foul line where they converted 22 
of 28 but ETSU got 40 chances and netted 30. 
These Quick Notes 

The Intramural Office has announced that 
all basketball entries must be completed 
and handed in by 4:30 p. m. December 12 
and the entry fee of $2 paid. There will be 
a basketball coaches meeting in the gym 
at this time. 

Competition will begin Dec. 16. Games 
will be played in both the Men's and Women's 
. Gyms. Pre- season basketball will be a tour- 
nament and is eligible to all members (faculty 
included) of the college. 

No additions may be made to the tourna- 
ment roster once it has been turned in. NCAA 
rules will be followed and the clocks will be 
running for the first half (20 minutes) and 
all but the last two minutes of the game. Five 
minutes will be given between halves and only 
two time outs will be given per team per 

Each team must have representative at 
the scorer's table and all players must be 
signed in with their number at game time. 
Let's Get A Band 

At all three road games there were combos, 
not a full piece orchestra, but just five or 
six players that entertained the crowd during 
time outs, halftime, before and after the 

It makes a tremendous difference to the 
enjoyment of the spectators and can promote 
spirit at the games. Northwestern has a 
very fine band and could promote both the 
basketball program, spirit, and themselves 
with an organization that would play at the 
NSC home games. 

How about it?

Arch-Rivals Provide 
Second GSC Test 

By Pesky Hill 

Northwestern's roundbal- 
lers, with an upset win over 
Southwest Conference champ 
Texas A&M under their belts, 
will return to the friendly con- 
fines of Prather Coliseum Mon- 
day night for a Gulf States 
Conference headliner with 
arch- rival Louisiana Tech. 

A capacity crowd of 3,500 
is expected to watch the De- 
mons and Bulldogs battle for 
the first time during the bas- 
ketball season. 

A year ago NSC drubbed the 
'Dogs 86-76 in Ruston, but then 
Tech pulled an 86-84 win out 
over the Demons at Prather. 

Coach Tynes Hildebrand's 
troops have just completed a 
four-game, two- week road trip. 
During this time, NSC met 
Texas A&M and Rice, a pair 
of SWCtoughies. 

Following NSC's clash with 
Tech, the Demons host inde- 

pendent Louisiana College

a break for the Christmas holi- 

Probable starters for the 
Purple and White against La.

(5-10) and Johnny Janese (6-1), 
forwards CarltonWalding (6-3), 
and Jerry Masters (6-3), and 
center Charles Bloodworth (6- 

Tech Counters 

Bulldog Coach Scotty Robert- 
son is expected to start guards 
George Corley (6-2) and Bud 
Dean (6-4), forwards George 
Thornton (6-4) and Mike Green 
(6-10), and center Charles Bis- 
hop (7-0). 

NSC's scoring punch thus far 
has been balanced. Bloodworth, 
Walding, Masters, Janese, and 

Watts have all done their thing 
to light up the Demon side of 
the scoreboard. 
Top-notch reserves for NSC 

have been guards Andy Marusak 
(6-2) and Randy Veuleman (6-0), 
forwards Jim Krajefska (6-2) 
and Thurmond Baptiste (6-4), 
and center Clarence Voss (6-9). 

Baptiste, who sees as much 
action as most of the starters, 
is a sophomore that has come 
off the bench to spark the 
Demons. He carries a 10.0 
rebound average in the early 

Balanced Scoring 
At press time four players 
were averaging in double 
figures for NSC. Janese (17.3), 
a junior from Lake Charles, 
leads the scoring derby while 
Walding (16.3), Bloodworth (15. 
1), and Watts (14.0) round out 
the balanced attack. 

Corley, an all- GSC per- 
former for Tech last season, 
carries a 20.2 scoring aver- 
age to lead the 'Dogs attack. 
Green (16.3), a freshman, 
Thornton (15.0), and Dean (13. 
1) round out the double digit 
scorers for Tech. 

Tipoff time for the varsity 
game is slated for 7 : 30 p.m. 
NSC's junior varsity will clash 
with the Tech JV's in a pre- 
liminary game that starts at 
5:15 p.m.

Recreation Assn. 
Elects Officers 

Officers have been elected 
by the newly-established Re- 
creation and Parks Associa- 
tion in the Department of Phy- 
sical Education at Northwestern 
State College. 

Robert Carroll, a junior from 
Natchitoches, will serve as pre- 
sident of the organization, and 
August Kuiper, a sophomore 
from Baton Rouge, was named 

Other officers are Nancy 
Wise, Charleston , W.V., se- 
cretary; Doug Tarver, Natchi-. 
toches, treasurer, and Julie 
Loughran, Shreveport, histor- 

Dr. Warren Evans of the 
Northwestern Department of 
Health, Physical Education and

ty adviser of the group. 

The Northwestern unit will 
become an affiliate of the Stu- 
dent Recreation and Park So- 
ciety of the National Recreation 
and Park Association, and or- 
ganization of more than 25,000 

steps for a rally at 11 o'clock. 

The group was initially den- 
ied the use of the courthouse

in federal court last week is 
expected to reverse the deci- 

All interested and sympathe- 
tic persons are urged to att- 
end the march and rally. 
For out-of-town participants, 
lodging can be arranged by 
calling Gordan Kenna (423-

Nursing Majors 
Receive Awards 

Two Northwestern State Col- 
lege nursing majors have re- 
ceived the Peacock Surgical 
Company Scholarship Awrds 
for the spring semester. 

Selected as recipients of the 
grants were Doris Davis of 
Haynesville and Patricia Sue 
Eichelberger of Goldsboro, N. 

The Peacock Scholarship A- 
wards were established at No- 
rthwestern in 1957, and more 
than 40 NSC nursing students 
have received financial assis- 
tance through the program. 

Miss Eichelberger is a sen- 
ior on the Natchitoches campus, 
and Mrs. Davis is a junior on 
the Shreveport Clinical Cam- 
pus of the NSC School of Nur- 
sing. Both are active in the 
Louisiana Association of Stu- 
dent Nurses. 

Among the six charter 
members of the 1949 for- 
med Gulf States Confer- 
ence were Miss. Southern 
and La. College. The two 
schools resigned their 
membership in 1952 and 
1956 respectively. 

Northwestern football te- 
ams have won or tied for 
the Gulf States Conference 
championship five times 
since the league was 
formed in 1949.

All-Bible Team 
Headed By No. i 

December 12, 1969^ ^cem be r 1 2,1 

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The follow- 
ing story is being reprinted 
from the Shreveport Times' 
Dec. 9 issue and was origi- 
nally written by the Associat- 
ed Press.) 

Every year about this time, 
it's the Ail-American football 
team, the All- Conference 
teams, etc, etc. But this year 
add something new- -the All- 
Bible team. 

Gatlinburg's (Tenn.) Christ- 
mas Gardens, trying a drama- 
tic approach toward acquaint- 
ing young people with the Bi- 
ble, announced the team Tues- 

Here it is: 

Quarterback- -Solomon. Who 
would be better qualified to 
call signals than the man ge- 
nerally recognized as the wis- 
est in history? He barely beat 
out David, who was a better 

Left Halfback- -David. Be- 
cause of his leadership ability 
strength, and courage, and he 
could throw passes on the op- 
tion play. 

Right Halfback- -Judas. Was 
as two faced as anybody and had 
the ability to fool the opposi- 
tion. (A great faker.) 

Fullback- -John the Baptist. 
Aggressive personality moved 
him frequently through hostile 

Ends- -Paul and Anak. Paul 
covered a great deal of terri- 
tory as the greatest mission- 
ary in the New Testament, and 
Anak, not so well known, but 
a giant who was difficult to 
defend against. 

Tackles-- Goliath and Sam- 
son. Goliath was a mountain 
of a man at 10 1/2 feet tall, 
and Samson was the strongest 
man in the Bible. Anyone who 
could push down the pillars of 
a temple should be able to pass' 
block, as long as the coach has 
no rules about long hair. 

Guards-- Moses and Jona- 
than. Moses, who after lead- 
ing the Israelites out of Egypt 
by parting the Red Sea, ought 
- to be able to pull out of the 
line and lead interference, and 
Jonathan, a strapping warrior 
endowed with great team spir- 
it, particularily in games ag- 
ainst the Philadelphia Philis- 

Center--Peter. A center of 
strength, who Jesus himself 

praised by saying " on this 
rock" he would build a church. 

(How about Jesus for a coach. 
He was a great spiritual advi- 
ser who could really get his boys 
up for a game.) 


Six out of one hundred foot- 
ball fans correctly selected the 
winners of the ten games used 
in the Current Sauce- -Caplan's 
Football Contest Sat. Nov. 22. 
The tie- breaking factor was 
the scores of the LSU-Tulane 
and Northwestern-Southeastern 
games submitted by the con- 

Charles Rhodes, a senior at 
NSC, was the winner having 
predicted LSU over Tulane, 
49-6 and Northwestern over 
Southeastern, 28-20. Charles 
will receive a $50 gift certi- 
ficate from Caplan's Men'sShop 
which is located at the cor- 
ner of Williams and Bienville 

The other fans who made the 
correct predictions for the ten 
games were, (in order regard- 
ing the tie-breaking scores) 
Mike Gerhardt, AlanDombrow- 
ski, Wayne LeBleu, Jo Ann 
Dombrowski, and Robert Ward. 

Only full-time NSC students 
were eligible to enter. Mem-

The half-dozen Demons stars were offensive center Gary 
HcCreary, both offensive guards Leslie Robertson and Bobby 
Ijoncak, defensive tackle Walter Edler, and both defensive 
luminals Mike Burrow and Mace Morris. 

All three offensive choices helped the 1969 Demons set 
dishing records by opening holes for the backs to scamper 

McCreary and Koncak are sophomore while Robertson has a 
par left in his college eligibility. 

All three consistently graded high and practically owned all

and Clarence Voss connected 
on a single field goal to round 
out the NSC scoring. 

Surprisingly little Watts 
(5-10) tied Bloodworth (6-8) 
in rebounds with eight. The 
Demons were out-grabbed by 
13 but managed to hit three 
more field goals. 


The Purple and White again 
came from behind but couldn't 
hold a four-point lead in the 
closing minutes and bowed to 
Rice University by an 80-78 
count Dec. 5. 

Northwestern appeared slug- 
glish in the first half—going 
one stretch without scoring for 
nine and one-half minutes-- 
and had to fight back from 
deficits ranging up to 15 points. 

NSC trailed by 10, 41-31, at 
half time but again used the 

base line jump shots of Wal- 
ding to pull into the lead in 
the waning moments. The ex- 
Bolton sharpshooter netted se- 
ven of eleven for the night 
and tied Bloodworth and the 
Owls' Gary Reist for high 
honors with 16. 

"Blood" also had good sta- 
tistics, bringing home five of 
eight from the court and cat- 
ching eight ricochets. 

Super Soph Thurmond Bap- 
tiste, playing well under pres- 
sure, came off the bench and 
popped in four of five from 
the field and grabbed a game 
high 13 rebounds. However 
it was Baptiste who was called 
for fouling as he went high 
in an attempt to block an Owl 
shot with three seconds left. 

Rice sank both free tosses 
for the difference in the con- 
test as both teams were rid- 

Former Demon 
Inducted Into 
Hall Of Fame 

Former Northwestern great 
Jackie Smith will be one of 
five players inducted into the 
National Association of Inter- 
collegiate Athletics (NAIA) Hall 
of Fame tomorrow in Kings- 
ville, Tex. 

Smith, a stellar offensive end 
for the Demons from 1958 
through 1962, came here on a 
track scholarship and went out 
for the football team on his 
own. During his four year 
stay he earned four letters in 
the grid sport and three for 
his cinder work. 

As a college football player 
Smith displayed exceptional 
abilities as a runner, pass re- 
ceiver, and blocker—skills 
which have made him an All- 
Pro tight end for the St. Louis 
football Cardinals. Smith was 
also NSC's regular punter for 
three years and has kicked in 
the professional ranks. 

As a cinderman, Jackie ran 
the high hurdles, the 440-yard 
dash, and was usually the an- 
chor man on all three relays. 

Smith recorded bests of 14.6 
in the hurdles, 48.5 in the quar- 
ter mile, and the Demon re- 
lay teams of Smith's time were 
among the best of the Gulf 
States Conference. 

The multi-purpose athlete 
was drafted by the Cardinals 
in 1962 and has started ever 

Beside being selected for 
the Pro Bowl the last three 
years, Smith has led the Red- 
birds in pass receiving during 
the same time- -an almost un- 
believable feat for a tight end. 

Coming into the 1969 sea- 
son Smith had caught 266 pas- 
ses for 4,554 yards and 22 
touchdowns. His 1,205 yards 
in receptions set ir Cardinal 
record in 1967 and still stands.

Watts and Baptiste connect- 
ed for 10 tallies, Janese ram- 
med in 15, Masters got six, 
Andy Marusak collected three, 
and Voss had two to end the 
Demon scoring. 

North Texas 

Five Demons hit double fig- 
ures but the balanced scoring 
wasn't enough to offset a 37 

point performance by North 
Texas post man Calvin Walker 
and some questionable calls 
by the referees. 

NSC shot 53.5 per cent from 
the field and held a 49-38 
half time lead but couldn't blow 
the game open and the Eagles 
came back to record 88- 82 win. 

Masters sparkled with 19 
points, Watts and Walding had 

15, Janese got 14, and J31ood- 
worth sacked 11 to cap the 
double digit men. Marusak 
pitched in four, and Baptiste 
and Voss had two each. 

Bloodworth fouled out for the 
third time in four games and 
was greeted by Voss on the 
bench who departed with 16 
minutes left. Three Demons 
worked with four personals.

The deer season ended last 
Sunday, Dec. 7, in many areas 
of the state. The archery 
season, however, continues 
while the gun season is clo- 
sed. During this time you can 
take either sex deer with the 
bow and arrow. Bowhunting 
is much more difficult than 
is hunting with a gun. The 
very maximum bow range for 
the average hunter is about 
40 yards. I don't shoot at 
anything over 30 yards and have 
missed deer much closer than' 
that. Missing is part of 

Just having a deer in range 
doesn't insure a kill. An 
arrow travels much slower than 
a bullet, between 300 and 
400 feet-per-second. 

Sometimes deer "jump the 
string", that is they are 
frightened by the twang of the 
bowstring and jump out of the 
line of fire before the arrow 
gets to them. That is why 
the the bowhunter must am- 
bush the deer when it is to- 
tally unaware the human is 

One common mistake a lot 
of archers make is shooting 
at the whole deer rather than 
a specific point. The ideal 
point to aim is just behind 
the shoulders in the lung 

In Louisiana you can legally 
hunt with a bow of at least 
30 pounds pull, but for white- 
tail deer the ideal draw wei- 
ght is 45 to 50 pounds. 

Hunting broadheads should be 
sharp enough to shave hair. 
An arrow kills primarily by 
hemmorage and a dull broad- 
head tends to push aside vital 
organs rather than cutting them 

Camouflage clothing is excel- 
lent for bowhunters. Depend- 
ing on the area to be hunt- > 
ed, a bright colored hat might 
be in order to protect you 
from excited squirrel hunters. 

By adding archery equipment 
to your other sporting gear 
you can extend the length of 
your hunting season.

An excellent game bird found 
in Louisiana that is generally 
neglected by hunters is the 
snipe. This long-billed shore 
bird offers very sporting shoo- 
ting as he dips and swerves in 
flight. In 1939 there was a 
severe, prolonged freeze and 
many snipe died. The season 
was closed because of this and 
remained closed for 12 years. 
The season on snipe opens

Dec. 13 with a daily bag limit 
of eight. 

It has been estimated that 
about 80 percent of the wood- 
cock on this continent spend 
the winter in Louisiana. The 
woodcock along with the snipe 
is a member of the Sandpiper 
family and is very well camou- 
flaged. A little bigger than the 
quail, they are some of the 
best tasting birds I have ever 
eaten. The woodcock season 
opened Nov. 27 and runs to 
Jan. 30. The daily limit is 
five with the possession limit 
at twice that. 

A survey made by the Lou- 
isiana Wild Life and Fisheries 
Commission's Fish and Game 
Division showed that during the 
1967-1968 hunting season there 
were approximately 35,674 
quail hunters. Those dedicated 
quail hunters bagged an esti- 
mated 635,-732 quail. 

The season runs from Nov. 
27 to Feb. 28 with 4 limit' of- 
10. There is good quail hunt- 
ing all over the state and 
there is nothing- that will start

The whooping cranes are 
back! The Continental Oil 
Co. is to be thanked for its 
conservation- minded program. 
Every year, just before the 
whoopers start their flight back 
to the Aransas National Wild- 
life Refuge in Texas, Contine- 
ntal suspends drilling operat- 
ions where the birds nest for 
the winter. 

Continental's vice president 
J. E. Finley sums up his com- 
pany's feelings this way: 
"Finding oil is important. 
But so are the whooping 
cranes. Whatever we can do 
to encourage their survival, 
we're going to do. It's just 
that simple." 

Whooping cranes have been 
seen in Louisiana so please 
don't shoot any big bird you 
can't identify. There are now 
55 cranes living wild.

By Pesky Hill 

Charles Bloodworth is a six- 
foot eight inch center for the 
Demons who' is in the habit 
of leaving basketball games be- 
fore the final horn. 

It's not becuase he wants to-- 
it's because he has to depart. 

No, Charles doesn't leave the 
game because he has to study 
for exams, go out with his girl, 
or even to work at a night- 
time job. 

The fact of the matter is that 
Bloodworth always seems to 
draw the attention of the offi- 

cials. And why not? He packs 
240 pounds on his frame and 
actually dominates the Demon 
offense and defense. 

"The Blood", a nickname 
he has picked up, will foul 
out of almost every game-- 
that is unless Coach Tynes Hil- 
debrand elects to let him sit 
out during a major portion of 
a contest. 

Most Fouls 
Never before has a North- 
western basketball player been 
whistled for as many personal 
fouls as Bloodworth. Charles 
actually has his name on the 
record book in every "PF" 

Bloodworth also has three 
other individual standards he 
set last season. They are: 
(1) highest PF average per 
game for the season (4.1), 2) 
most PF's in GSC games for 
a season (51), and 3) highest 
PF avg. in the GSC (4.3). 

What effect has the absence 
of Bloodworth had on the 1969- 
70 version of Hildebrand's De- 

Northwestern has a 1-3 re- 
cord thus far in the early going 
and Bloodworth fouled out in all 
thr&e games in the losing col- 
umn. Charles stayed the dis- 
tance in the Demons' lone vic- 

That lone victory of NSC's 
was no fluke either. It came 
over Texas A&M, defending 
Southwest Conference champ, at 
College Station. 

A typical example of what 
happens when Bloodworth gets 
in foul trouble came Monday 
night in the 88-82 loss to East 
Texas State University. Blood- 
worth fouled out (with 12 : 16 
left) and could manage only 11 
points and four rebounds during 
his brief appearance in the con- 


Charles averaged 8.5 rebou- 
nds and 13.0 points per game 
last season when he made the 
off to a good start in NSC's 
opener when he stuffed in 26 
points and pulled down 16 re- 
bounds. Bloodworth received 
ill- GSC first team. He dis- 
:inguished himself despite foul- 
ing out of nearly every GSC fray. 

This season Bloodworth got 
a standing ovation from the par- 
tisan P rather Coliseum crowd 
upon receiving his fifth per- 
sonal with over six minutes left 
in the game--but NSC lost the 
game 96-90 to North Texas. 

True, the Demons have prov- 
ed in the early firing that they 
will make a strong run for the 
GSC title this season. But how 
effective NSC is down the stre- 
tch could be a determining fac- 
tor. If Bloodworth can stay in 
enough games- -he could be the 

Last season as a junior, Bl- 
oodworth ' s number was cal- 
led 120 times for fouling. That 
tied a record for most person- 
al fouls in one season by an in- 
dividual, which was set by Jim 
Thomas in the 1953-54 cam- 

It was not until 1922 that 
Northwestern athletic te- 
ams were named Demons. 
A school-wide contest for 
the purpose of choosing 
a nickname picked "De- 
mons" over the other fina- 
list entry "Braves." 

Wilt Chamberlain, pro- 
fessional basketball's all- 
time leading scorer, holds 
the record for most points 
scored in a single game,

The Night Before Christmas 

By Carl Silverstein, Sammy Brown, and Mike Wright 

'Twas the night before Christmas when all through the dorms 

Not a person was stirring, not even Dean Starnes. 

The panties were hung from the windows with care. 

In hopes that the boys soon would be there. 

The girls were nestled all snug in their beds 

While visions of midnight callers danced in their heads. 

C.S. at their stations and monitors in their dorms 

Had just settled down to fill out some forms 

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter 

"Come on now boys! Let's raise up that ladder"' 

I darted up to the window as quick as a flash, 

Tore open the screen and was in with a crash. 

The lights on the crest of the frost- covered lawn 

Gave me a feeling that something was wrong. 

Out in the street objects appeared, 

Campus Security -- just as I feared 

With a little director so lively and quick 

I knew in a moment it must be Dean Nick. 

More rapid than eagles the officers they came, 

And he growled and shouted as he called them by name. 

"Now Smith! now Jones! now Lee and Knight! 

"On Sims! on Stevens! on Taylor and Wright! 

"To the top of the stairs, to the end of the hall! 

"Now, catch 'em, catch 'em, catch 'em all!" 
So into the lobby they flew 

Armed with flashlights and Dean Nick too. 

And then in a second I heard in the hall, 

"Be quiet, I'm warning you all!" 

As I grabbed my booty and was turning around 

Through the door came Dean Nick, I could tell by the sound. 

A bundle of handcuffs he had flung on his back 

And he laughed at me and said, "Hand me the sack." 

He was straight- forward and serious, much in good health, 

And I shook when I saw him in spite of my self. 

A frown on his face and a gleam in his eye, 

Gave me to know there was nothing to deny. 

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work 

But as C.S. arrived he turned with a jerk. 

And as he turned to clear their path 

I leaped out the window to avoid their wrath. 

And they heard me exclaim ere I ran out of sight, 

"Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!!" 

ROTC Marks An Anniversary 

In addition to the serious aspects of ROTC training, there are 
also social activities such as the crowning of the queen of the 
ROTC ball. 

American tradition of military 
instruction on the college cam- 
pus marks its 150th anniver- 
sary this school year. 

The concept of educating 
Army officers on the civilian 
college campus, which started 
in 1819 at what is now Norwich 
University in Vermont, is to- 
day carried on through the 
Army ROTC program which is 
taken by approximately 150.000 
men at 283 colleges throughout 
the United States. This year 
more than 16,000 men received 
Armv commissions through the 
ROTC program. 

Not only does ROTC provide 
the Army with more officers 
than any other officer develop- 
ment source, but it is also the 
least expensive way of training 
a man to be an officer. 

The Armv is dependent upon 
the ROTC-trained officer. Ap- 

proximately 50 per cent of all 
officers in the Army today re- 
ceived their commissions 
through the ROTC program 
and more than 150 of the 
Army's generals are ROTC 
alumni. Among them are Gen. 
William B. Rosson, deputy 
commanding general in Viet- 
nam and Lt. Gen. Frederick 
Weyand. U.S. militarv adviser 
to the Paris peace talks. 

A roster of ROTC alumni in 
civilian life is equally impres- 
sive. It would include presi- 
dents of large corporations, 
government leaders and profes- 
sional and amateur athletes. 
Among them are Secretary of 
the Army Stanley R. Resor, 
former Secretary of State Dean 
Rusk. U.S. Senators Edward 
W. Brooke. Jack R. Miller. 
John Stennis and Ernest F. 
Hollings. and tennis star Ar- 
thur Ashe. 

Drive carefully over the hol- 
idays, remember -- it's not 
only the car that can be re- 
called by its maker. 

Drive carefully, we can only 
repair your car. 

Any country in which black 
men and white men can play 
together on one team and call 
themselves the redskins can't 
be so filled with prejudice.

College students are the first 
to agree that friends can get 
to be a drag, work a hassle, 
and studies a tiresome task. 
When the going gets rough, they 
might find it easy to become 
grouchy, apathetic, uncaring. 

Don Shively is an exception. 

"I just like people," Don 
states simply to explain his 
constant bubbling enthusiasm 
and cheerful attitude. "North- 
western is a friendly, pretty 
campus with lots of atmosphere 
where students are treated not 
too liberal, not too conserva- 
tive, but just right. It's easy 
to be happy here." 

Indeed, Don practices a star - 
tlingly happy outlook not only 
as one confined to a wheel 
chair from an early age, but 
as a typical NSC student as well- 

A native of Jonesboro, La., 
where he graduated from Jones- 
boro High School, Don is a 20- 
year old Freshman majoring 
in accounting. He finds his 
classes "not too difficult yet," 
and plans to graduate from NSC 
to become an accountant. 

As Don sees it, this year is 

one of firsts for him. He is a 
first semester Freshman at- 
tending regular classroom ses- 

Ball Is Planned 
For Mardi Gras 

The Student Union program 
council met Dec. 9, to plan a 
Mardi Gras All- Campus Mas- 
querade Ball to be held Feb. 
4, 1970. 

Nominations from each floor 
of the dorms and each organi- 
zation for one male and one 
female are to be handed in to 
the Student Union Director's 
office by Monday, Dec. 15 at 
5 p.m. in Room 214. 

The 15 men and women will 
be selected and have their 
names put on the ballot for 
Mardi Gras king and queen 
in a campus- wide election 
to be held Thursday, Dec. 18. 

The top seven men and women 
will be on the court. The 
names of the king and queen 
will be kept secret and announ- 
ced the night of the ball. 

Nominations should be made 
on the basis of good charac- 
ter, personality, leadership, 
and scholarship (2.0). The band 
selected for the Mardi Gras 
Masquerade Ball is Gege Shin 
and the Roller Coasters. 

sions for the first time. In 
high school, he learned lessons 
by means of an intercom sy- 
stem placed in his home, but 
now he meets in regular class- 
room schedule. Of this change, 
Don says, "I guess I was 
the scaredest person on cam- 
pus that first day of school, 
but now I'm glad it's worked 
out this way. I can under- 
stand lectures, especially in 
algebra, better. Besides that, 
associating with people in 
classes is educational and fun. 
I find that even more advan- 
tageous than getting lectures 

Don obviously has adjusted 
well in all areas of NSC life. 
He enjoys ping pong, 
ing, and just getting along with 
his multitude of friends. As 
far as student protest and ac- 
tivism go, Don sees them as 
secondary problems to the stu- 

dent. "The first thing a stu. 
dent must worry about," he 
says," is the demand placed 
on him from all angles. Every., 
one has a different set 
demands, and he'll only make 
the grade if he meets then

Indeed, Don Shively has de- Rapid

t chart this week. One is

ped from outside the charts 
and is now the number ninesono. 
Other new soncs are "Friend- 
ship Train" by Gladys Knight

by the Jackson Five, and "These 
Eyes" by Junior Walker and the 
Allstars. You will recall that 
"These Eyes" was first made 
popular this summer by the 
Guess Who? 

The Beatles, after having a 
double hit with "Come Toget- 
her" and "Something" have 
moved down to the number four 
position. After being number 
12 last week, "Holly Holy" by 
Neil Diamond has dropped to 
number 13. It seems that Dia- 
mond's new record will not 
become a hit after all. Anot- 
her double hit is coming up 
fast in the form of Creedence 
Clearwater Revival's "Down 
on the Corner," and "Fort- 
unate Son" The record is mo- 
ving up fast and is likely to 
become a bigger hit than the 
Beatles' record. Could image 
be a factor here? 

It seems that the Supremes 
and the Temptations are going 
to be a smash together. "Som- 
eday We'll be Together," 
which they do as a unit is now 
the number three song having 
raced to the top from the num- 
ber 15 spot last week.

Theatres Offer 
Wide Selection 


by rapid stages to collecting 
them. There is even danger 
that you could end up as a 
bon vivant. There are close 
to 500 known Louisiana cook- 
books, all identified and re- 
gistered in The Rochester 
Clarke Bibliography of Louisi- 
ana Cookery; collecting them 
is not, therefore, child's play. 
Neither is the study of the 
Louisiana cuisine nor the cul- 
tivation of a taste for enjoy- 
ing strange dishes on the print- 
ed page instead of the plate 
a thing to be lightly under- 
taken. So read on at your 
own risk: you've been given 
fair warning. 

You'll probably want to start 
off with a simple local cook- 
book. The Melrose Plantation 
Cookbook, by Francois Mignon 
and Clementine Hunter, is an 
excellent first "reading cook- 
book", full of enticing Nat- 
chitoches recipes. It offers 
you, among others, recipes for 
such delicacies as "Tomato 
Robeline", "Potatoes Arroyo 
Hondo", "Eggs Grand Ecore", 
and "Pleasant Hill Re- 

The Food Fantasy cookbook 
of the Beta Sigma Phi sor- 
ority of Natchitoches is pret- 
ty thrilling reading, too. 
Consider the recipe for 
"snickerdoodles", which Mrs. 
Fay Breazeale contributed. 
Or you just might like to 
know on what food our Caesar

gination play with the idea of 
"Potatoes du Willard", offer-

At The Don 

Premiering on Sunday, Dec. 
14 and showing through Thur- 
sday Dec. 16, will be a movie 
called The Rain People. The 
movie stars Shirley Knight, Ja- 
mes Caan, and Robert Duvall. 

The Rain People is the story 
of a young married girl (Shi- 
rley Knight) who leaves her 
husband when she finds she 
is pregnant because she is not 
ready to become a mother. 
As she is driving aimlessly 
along, she spots a guy hitch- 
hiking and picks him up. He 
turns out to be a former foot- 
ball player named Killer Gan- 
non (James Caan) who has dro- 
pped out of football and coll- 
ege because of an injury which 
Sshe .Jater. discovers to be a 
head injury. Upon discovering 
this fact her motherly instin- 
cts are aroused and she de- 
cides to take care of him. 

He has been offered a job 
in West Virginia and she agrees 
to drive him there. On the way 
he tells her about the rain peo- 
ple -- those who are made of 
rain and disappear when they 
cry. He tells her that she is 
like them. When the two reach 
West Virginia, Knight decides 
to leave Killer Gannon at his 
job. She gets caught for speed- 
ing by a handsome policeman 
who asks her out. They go to 
his trailer where he tries to 
make love to her. Meanwhile, 
Killer Cannon and the police- 
man's daughter are playing a 
game peeking in trailer win- 
dows. When they happen to look 
in on Knight and the policeman 
Gannon tries to kill the police- 
man and the girl shoots him 
and he dies. 

The Rain People is a chall- 
enging, controversial film 
which is among the first major 
American films to use techni- 
ques made popular by Europ- 
ean filmmakers. The movie is 

rated "R." 

— Also playing at Ih^Dohsta- 
rting Wednesday, Dec. 1*7 and 
continuing through Saturday, 
Dec. 20, will be Me, Natalie. 
Me, Natalie stars Patty Duke, 
James Farentino, and Martin 

As you become more exper- 
ienced, your jaded palate may 
crave more stimulating fare. 
Then you can read Cajun 
Country Cookin', by John and 
Glenna Uhler. They offer 
you full and detailed instruc- 
tions on how to prepare "Ole 
Homer Delacroix's Bowl of 
Fire Known as Chili" and 
even share with you their 
secret recipe for "Awful-Aw- 
fuls Juice". 


The movie is an updated ur- 
ban ugly duckling story which 
should have great appeal for 
college students. The story has 
been updated with LSD, junkies, 
and Greenwich Village, but still 
has the same great appeal that 
has moved audiences for cen- 

Me, Natalie has been released 
by National General Pictures 
and is rated "M." 

At The Cane 

Starting Friday, Dec. 12, the 
Cane Theatre will show a dou- 
ble feature for Friday and Sa- 
turday nights. The two movies 
are Anyone Can Play and Villa 

Anyone Can Play stars Ur- 
sula Andress, Virni Lisi, Cl- 
audine Auger, and MarisaMell. 
It is the story of four beauti- 
ful Italian girls with a problem. 
Each girl is having an affair 
with another man and one girl 
is even being blackmailed. In 
the end though things work out 
in one way or another. 

Villa Rides stars Yul 
Brynner, Robert Mitchum, and 
Charles Bronson. This movie 
tells the story of Pancho Vil- 
la and the trouble in Mexico. 
Here history has been spiced 
up with a beautiful girl (Gra- 
zia Buccella), an airplane 
manned by Robert Mitchum, a 
love story, and a get toget- 
her for the return of Villa. 

After a run of Paranoia from 
Dec. 14, through Dec. 16, the 
Cain will start a movie called 
Ghosts Italian Style starring 
Sophia Loren in the title role. 

Ghosts Italian Style is a 
very hilarious movie in- 
volving a love triangle. It all 
starts when Sophia's husband, 
a ne'er-do-well, is offered, 
rentfree, a 17th century Na- 
ples palazzo. There is one -a-- 
tch -- the palazzo is haunted 
a by the ghost of its original 
owner, a Duke who committed 
a murder. 

Mario Adorf, director of the 
orphanage in which Sophia was 
brought up, has threatened to 
take Sophia back if Gassman 
(her husband) doesn't start do- 
ing something. When they move 
to the house, Adorf, still wan- 
ting possession of Sophia mo- 
ves into an upstairs room -- 
that's when the fun begins. 

To tell the end of this story 
would spoil all the fun, but 
it can be said that surprise 
follows surprise, and laugh- 
ter piles on laughter. You can 
put down Ghosts Italian Style 
as a very funny movie and a 
great hit for Sophia Loren.

Greeks Planning Christmas Activities 


Pi Kappa Phi is proud to 
announce the initiation of ten 
members to the active roles 
of Pi Kappa Phi. They are as 
follows: William Post Goins, 
Robert Wendel Bitowski, Geo- 
rge Paul Fink. Valsin Albert 

Marmillion, Rudolph Perry Bu- 
rnette, Bobby Donald Watts, Br- 
onson A. Turner, James Roy 
Duplichan, Joseph Henry La- 
field, and Jerry Thomas Bax- 
ter. These members will make 
a fine addition to our undergra- 
duate chapter. 

It is with even greater plea- 
sure that we announce the ini- 
tiation of another alumnus 
member to our ranks. Recently 
we had the privilege of initiat- 
ing Ernest L. Hill as an alum- 
nus member. Coach Hill is a 
member of the Health and Phy- 
sical Education Department at 
Northwestern State College. 

December the tenth was the 
date on which Pi Kappa Phi 
was founded sixty-five years 
ago. The members honored Fo- 
under's Day and are planning 
a full weekend of activities in- 
cluding the annual pledge-active 
football game. 


Kappa Sigma will hold its 
Founders Day Banquet tonight 
commemorating its centennial 
year as a national fraternity. 
During the banquet the new of- 
ficers and Dream Girl and her 
court will be presented. Scot- 
ty Maxwell will MC the fes- 
tivities. Following the Ban- 
quet, Theta Mu will have its 
annual Christmas Formal fea- 
turing the "Rogue Show," from 
Shreveport. This party is one 
of the main social events of 
the semester. 

The brothers have been com- 
peting all week in volley ball 
play with the finals scheduled 
for this afternoon or early next 


Members of our chapter are 
planning our annual Christmas 
dance for Saturday night, Dec. 
13. Many parents of the bro- 
thers of our chapter were here 
last weekend for the Christ- 
mas Festival. We certainly 
enjoyed having them as our 
guests. We have entered a 
team in the Basketball Tour- 
nament to be held next week. 
The volleyball team is still 
in competition in the volleyball 
tourney. Our traveling regional 
advisor Neal Sleeper will be 
here next week to pay our chap- 
ter a visit. Welcome to NSC 
•Brother Sleeper. 


Delta Zeta is proud to an- 
nounce that we won second pl- 
ace in the window painting con- 
test. Debbie Davis was our 
artist and the design was the 
three wise men and two chil- 
dren in front of a Christmas 
tree. The theme was "and so 
came the legend of giving." 

The nominating committee 
was elected this week for the 
coming election of offic- 
ers. Mrs. Linda Schallmann 
provided us with a standard 
meeting and a talk on good 

Delta Zeta's Christmas pa- 
rty was held last Friday at the 
Natchitoches Country Club. Ev- 
eryone agreed that it was the 
best dance Delta Zeta had seen 
in a long time. 


Christmas is near and the 
TKE Santa Claus will be vi- 
siting hospitals in Monroe, Na- 
tchitoches, Shreveport, and Al- 
exandria leaving small gifts 
with the children. The chap- 
ter also enjoyed putting up 
the window display in the Stu- 
dent Union including the De- 
gluing of Frater Maniscalco. 

Actives and pledges are lo- 
oking forward to the TKE Ch- 

Yes, Virginia 

Santa Is Real 

The following article first 
appealed in the New York Sun 
many years ago. As you can 
see, it was in answer to a 
letter written to the Sun con- 
cerning Santa Claus. It is be- 
ing printed here in connection 
with the Christmas season. 

The New York Sun 
"Dear Editor: 

I am eight years old. 

Some of my friends say there 
is no Santa Claus. 

Papa says 'If you see it in 
the Sun it's so.' 

Please tell me the truth, is 
there a Santa Claus?" 

Virginia O'Hanion 
115 West 95th Street 
Friends Are Wrong 

"Virginia, your little friends 
are wrong. They have been af- 
fected by the skepticism of a 
skeptical age. They do not be- 
lieve except what they see. They 
think that nothing can be which 
is not comprehensible by their 
little minds. All minds, Virgin- 
ia, whether they be men's or 
children's, are little. In this 
great universe of ours man is 
a mere insect, an ant, in his 
intellect, as compared with the 
boundless world about him, as 
measured by the intelligence 
capable of grasping the whole 
truth and knowledge. 

"Yes, Virginia, there is a 
Santa Claus. He exists as cer- 
tainly as love and generosity and 
devotion exist, and you know that 
they abound and give to your life 
its highest beauty and joy. Alas! 
how dreary would be the world 
if there were no Santa Claus! 
It would be as dreary as if there 
were no Virginias. There would 
be no childlike faith then, no 
poetry, no romance to make tol- 

erable their existence. We 
should have no enjoyment, ex- 
cept in sense and sight. The 
eternal light with which child- 
hood fills the world would be 

"Not believe in Santa Claus! 
You might as well not believe in 
fairies! You might get your 
Papa to hire men to watch in 
all the chimneys on Christmas 
Eve to catch Santa Claus, but 
even if they did not see Santa 
Claus coming down, what would 
that prove. Nobody sees Santa 
Claus, but that is no sign 
there is no Santa Claus. The 
most real things in the world are 
those that neither children or 
men can see. Did you ever see 
fairies dancing on the lawn? Of 
course not, but that's no proof 
that they are not there. No- 
body can conceive or imagine 
all the wonders there are un- 
seen and unseeable in the world. 

"You tear apart the baby's 
rattle and see what makes the 
noise inside, but there is a veil 
covering the unseen world which 
not the strongest man, not even 
the united strength of all the 
strongest men that ever lived, 
could tear apart. Only faith, fan- 
cy, poetry, love, romance, can 
push aside that curtain and 
view and picture the supernat- 
ural beauty and glory beyond. 
Is it all real? Ah. Virginia, in 
all this world there is nothing 
else real and abiding. 

"No Santa Claus! Thank God 
he lives, and he lives forever. 
A thousand years from now. 
Virginia, nay, ten times thous- 
and years from now, he will 
continue to make glad the heart 
of childhood." 

ristmas Party to be held at

Ray Schexnider. We also look 
forward to caroling our way

Val Marmillion was 
elected to the post of vice 
president of the SGA at the 
body's regular meeting 
Monday night. 

He filled the office for- 
mally occupied by Donnie 
Martin, who automatically 
succeeded Henry Burns as 
president of the SGA. Burns 
resigned to assume a politi- 
cal job in Washington. 

The 25-member SGA 
unanimously elected Mar-

president. He previously

The play is an adaptation 
of Masters's work of poetry 
the same title, in which 
exposes and examines 
e characters of Spoon 
River residents, some dead 
■and some alive. Each actor 
actress takes on several 
lifferent characters as the 

an experiment in group 
acting. The people involved 
take the poetry of Masters 
combined with the aid of 
folk songs, and actually 
create their own story. The 
setting involves the mythi- 
cal town of Spoon River Illi- 
nois, and its mythical grave 
yard. The anthology was 
the original idea of Charles 
Aidman who also directed 
and stared in the play. 

Adiman's play opened in 
New York Sept. 9, 1963, and 
became a success on Broad- 
way. His original group 
from UCLA. Since then the 
idea of taking a current 
interest in a significant 
piece of literature and 

served on the SGA as presi- 
dent of the Freshman and 
Sophomore Classes. 

Last fall he was a delegate 
at the Southern Universities 
Student Government 
Association's (SUSGA) 
national convention and is 
currently Louisiana chair- 
man of SUSGA. 

Marmillion said he was 
pleased to be elected vice 
president because in this 
position he can do more 
effective work in the SGA. 

"Considering the way the 
SGA was run last year, it 
could stand some improve- 
ment," Marmillion said. 

He remarked that he 
wanted to begin his work in 
office by trying to uncover 
the major gripes of the stu- 
dents. However, he con- 
siders his main goal to be 
the improvement of the 
image of NSC so that more 
new students will choose to 
attend college here. 

Marmillion further 
commented that he would 
like to expand and improve 
the student services func- 
tion of the SGA. He thinks 
the activities of the Student 
Services Committee have 
been sufficient, but he 
deems this function of 
student government as 
important and desires to see 
it greatly supplemented. 

Under New Leadership 

Martin Falls Heir To Presidency 

Donnie Martin 

Donnie Martin has 
assumed the role of presi- 
dent of the Student Govern- 
ment Association. 

Martin, former vice presi- 
dent of the SGA, ascended to 
the post as a result of the 
resignation of Henry Burns 
at the end of the fall semes- 

According to Dean Dudley 
Fulton, Burns stepped down 
from his office and left 
Northwestern to take a job 
in Washington on the staff 
of Congressman Joe D. 
Waggonner of Plain Deal- 
ing. "It was a great oppor- 
tunity which Henry could 
not afford to pass up," said 

Burns was recommended 
for the position by the presi- 
dent of the college. 
Although he was only three 
hours from graduating at 
NSC, Dean Fulton said 
Burns decided to take 
advantage of the oppor- 
tunity and pursue his 
academic studies at a 
university in Washington. 

Martin commented that 
Burns resigned without 
much advance warning due 
to the sudden, unexpected 
development of the job 

opportunity. "Henry's 
leaving came as a big shock 
to everybody on the SGA," 
said Martin. 

During his first year on 
the SGA, Martin served as 
freshman representative. 
Since then he has worked on 
several committees and this 
year was chairman of the 
Lady of the Bracelet 

When questioned about 
his opinion of student 
government, Martin said, 
"Student government's 
purpose is to serve the 
students by making their 
wants and demands known 
to the administration and 
faculty. However, it can 
only be effective if the stu- 

dents take the time and 
interest to make their wants 
and needs known." 

The new president ela- 
borated on his future plans 
concerning the SGA by 
saying that he wanted a 
complete constitutional 
revision. "The old consti- 
tution contains a lot of out- 
dated clauses," said Martin. 
He explained that the 
constitutional changes will 
have to be proposed by the 
Executive Council and then 
adopted by the voting body 
of the SGA. 

In addition, Martin 
commented he would like to 
initiate a study of the 
campus bookstore in an 
attempt to reduce the prices 
and enlarge services.

What Do You ThinkPi 4^??^ 

By Donnie Martin 

Jn iight of the present controversy over the 
spring entertainment program this year, the 
Current Sauce decided to pose the question: What 
do you think of the Big Name Entertainment 

"I think we're relying too much on single per- 
formers, and I don't like single performers. For 
example, Johnny Mathis can't entertain me for any 
hour and a half. I like a group with enough singers 
to provide a variety of styles."— Ronald Mayeux, 

"I like them all except Johnny Mathis. The other 
two will be good."— Kenny Guidry, Gueydan. 

"If you like that kind of music, it's good, but per- 
sonally, I'd like to see a couple of rock groups come 
here. In my three years here, entertainment has 
gone down. I don't think a lot of the kids here really 
like this kind of music."-Michael Levine, West 
Hartford, Conn. 

"If they all show up, it'll be about the best they've 
had in a long time."— Ken Berry, Natchitoches. 

"I wish they would have gotten Jose Feliciano 
instead."— Linda Blanchard, Sulphur. 

"I love to see little Stevie."— "Smokey" Joe Frank, 
Natchez, Miss. 

"I think it's great— I think the best will be Oliver. 
I don't think it shows very good school spirit for 
people not to buy the tickets. I even bought an 
extra one to help out." — Alice Cook, Baton Rouge. 

"The main thing I see wrong is that I've seen 
better entertainment at this school. If the SGA 
Entertainment Committee can't afford the groups, 
why run those surveys? The students should have 
some say so about what entertainment they get. 
We need more professional entertainers."— Eddie 
Sutherland, New Orleans. 

"Prices shouldn't keep going up. I quit buying the 
tickets. The groups you're getting aren't the ones 
you're really interested in today. They're for older 
people-the night club set. Each semester, the 
entertainment is getting a little worse. The ones 
who come give a good show, but they aren't what 
we want."-Joyce Witt, Leesville. 

NSCs Appeals System 

By Jack Hoffstadt 

Three short years ago, 
NSC was gripped by hy- 
steria because of a rumor 
that NSC was to become a 
university. Today, I doubt 
if a suggestion of such a ridi- 
culous nature could raise 
the student body a high state 
of apathy. 

This idea is ridiculous for 
two reasons. One is the 
disastrous financial state of 
Louisiana (except where it 
concerns LSU and LSUNO), 
and second is because some 
of the policies enforced by 
our administration would be 
a severe' detriment to a 

We cannot at this time do 
anything about the state's 
financial woes, but we can 
with the help of a few pro- 
gressive administrators, 
remove some of our internal 

The appeal rule, in 
essence, is the removal of 
the one semester waiting 
period after a student has 
failed out. Now, to fail out of 
NSC is in the first place a' 
difficult thing to do. 

There are two ways of 
failing out— one is to go 
below a 1.5 average for one 
semester and then fail to 
achieve a 2.0 the following 
semester (almost an 
impossible task if books are 
purchased and opened from 
time to time). The second 
way of failing out occurs 
when the student falls below 
a 1.0 average during a 
single semester (something 
hard to do even if the stu- 
dent can appeal his dis- 
missal, which has, in the 
past, been given out in an 
almost automatic fashion— 
although there is a trend to 
make the appeal only semi- 
automatic now. 

A student may appeal up 
to four times which means 
that theoretically a student 
can go to NSC for three 
years and never make a 1.0 
average, much less a two 

Therefore, a person who 
has evidently no academic 

interest or does not have the 
sufficient intelligence is 
forced on the more 
seriously-minded student. 
Clearly, a situation of this 
kind would not be allowed to 
continue at a university 
(neither LSU nor LSUNO 
have appeals), nor any 
place that could be con- 
sidered academically 
progressive, if only for the 
simple reason that it would 
lower the academic stan- 
dards that could be reached 
in the classroom. 

Reasons for having the 
appeal are— if possible- 
sillier than the rule itself. 
One of the old reasons was 
because the school needed to 
protect students from the 
draft, however, with the 
lottery system now in effect, 
there is no longer any 
reason for this. 

Also, there are the cries of 
the voting mommies and 
daddies when their little 
babies don't make it at the 
big bad college, and "con- 
sidering the effect that the 
legislature has on colleges, 
we don't want to offend 

However, the most impor- 
tant reason is the fact that 
the Louisiana legislature 
doles out money on the stu- 
dent credit hour system— a 
system which forces col- 
leges to sacrifice standards 
for monetary returns. With 
this system, the college 
receives money on the basis 
of the amount of hours these 
students are registered for. 

Thus, if Tech has 1,000 stu- 
dents registered for 15 hours 
each, and we have 1,000 stu- 
dents registered for 14 hours 
each, then Tech will get 
more money because they 
have more student credit 

In order to continue 
financially, a college must 
have a large amount of stu- 
dent credit hours. There- 
fore, under this system, we 
have to have students- 
good, bad, and terrible-to

Having been virtually 
inactive since Christmas, 
the S.G.A. now faces the 
problems of reorganizing 
and gaining momentum for 
the spring semester. 
Presently, the offices of 
senior women's representa- 
tive and sophomore vice 
president are vacant. These 
offices must be filled by the 
respective class presidents 
within a few weeks. 

There are numerous pro- 
blems concerning students 
which need remedial action. 
Many of these come under 
the jurisdiction of the Stu- 
dent Services Committee. 
Chairman Gary Digilormo 
is currently working on the 
food services which have 
been unsatisfactory, to say 
the least. 

The unheard complaints 
of last semester which were 
registered with Mr. Stone 
have now been referred to 
the administration. This 
committee is also working 
on the rennovation of the 
travel board to aid students 
in finding rides home. 

This semester the S.G.A. 
Executive Council will 
direct and plan most of the 
activities of the governing 
body. These officers will be 

in charge of a complete revi- 
sion of the organization's 
constitution. Among these 
revisions will be changes in 
student fees that are current- 
ly being investigated by the 
Organizations Board. 

Recommendations from 
the board will be reviewed 
by the Executive Council be- 
fore they are presented for 
approval by the S.G.A. vot- 
ing body. If approved, the 
changes will be voted on by 
the general student body. 

Another project to be 
completed by S.G.A. is a 
teacher evaluation. 
Students of consenting tea- 
chers will be surveyed. The 
results will be complied and 

given to the instructors so 
they may know how their 
students rate them. 

In all, the S.G.A. can 
expect to find a lot of work 
to do if they are to adequate- 
ly meet student needs. 

One specific need is the 
reduction of prices and the 
betterment of services of the 
school bookstore. The 
ineffective committee of last 
semester will be revitalized 
in an effort to work with the 
administration on current 
bookstore problems.

The Crisis In Entertainment 

Have AU Checks 
Fr'lled Out And 
Made To NSC 

A Look At Henry Burns 

A student leader at Northwestern is gone now, 
but left behind him are the remnants of his 
profound influence upon the student life of NSC. 

This is riot intended to be a eulogy of Henry 
Burns. ..but rather a recounting of the contributions 
this past president of the student body has made to 
the welfare of students— past, present and future. 

His first term as president smacks somewhat of 
that successful first Johnson administration. The 
similarity ends, however, in that Burns was 
apparently well-liked among his fellow students 
for he overwhelmed his opponent in an 
unprecedented bid for a second term at the helm of 
NSCs Student Government Association. 

During his first term if office, landmark changes 
were achieved, including a three-day Mardi Gras 
Holiday, a seven-day vacation for Easter, abolition 
of Saturday classes, more freedoms for coeds, and a 
general improvement of the living and learning 
conditions for students here. 

Of course it is a gross overstatement to attribute 
all these and other alterations to one person— even 
the president of SGA. But, just as he is expected to 
bear the brunt of the shortcomings, he should also 
be allowed to share in the glory of the 
achievements of the Burns administrations. 

An unfortunate rift in the SGA transformed it 
into a multi-factioned non-organization this year. 
This, according to Burns, caused his short-lived 
second term to be anti-climactic for him. One can 
only speculate what improvements could have 
been attained had this disunity among his officers 
not occurred. 

Though not always treated gently by this 
newspaper, Burns never harbored animosities 
toward the Sauce, nor allowed personal attitudes to 
distort communications with the student body 
through this newspaper. Always cooperative, and 
interested in the functioning of the Current Sauce, 
he stands exemplary of student body presidents in 
this regard. 

Endowed with outstanding quantities of 
character, leadership, and understanding, a student 
leader such as Henry Burns is a rarity any 
institution is fortunate to find. 


Dear Editor, 

In the Dec. 12, 1969 issue 
of the Current Sauce, there 
was an article entitled, "For 
What It's Worth." In this 
article, two proposals were 
made. These proposals 
advocated drinking on- and 

Thank God for freedom of 
the press. That's one way 
we are heard. I am a pastor 
and preacher of the Word of 
God, and I am doing only 
what all pastors and prea- 
chers should be doing. I am 
opposed to drinking, and the 
liquor traffic, and booze in 
any form--anywhere. God's 
word speaks out against 
strong drink. 

What I have to say is not 
necessarily, "as I see it"; it 
is what God is saying about 
strong drink that matters. I 
want to be in line with the 

The Bible says, "Wine is a 
mocker, strong drink is 
raging : and whosoever is 
deceived thereby is not 

wise." (Froberbs 20: 1) "Who 
hath woe? Who hath 
sorrow? Who hath conten- 
sions? Who hath 

babblings? Who hath 
wounds without cause? 
Who hath redness of eyes? 
They that tarry long at the 
wine. They that go to seek 
mixed wine." (Proverbs 23: 

With the present history 
of the evils of strong drink 
available, the presence of 
bars and taverns on our col- 
lege campus most likely 
could not be considered as 
progress by thinking people. 

The best way to stop drink- 
ing of booze anywhere is to 
convert men to Jesus Christ. 
All men are new creatures 
in Christ. Students and 
citizen are of more value 
sober than drunk any time. 

Please don't allow liquor 
and bars on our college 
campus at Northwestern. 

D.L. Callender, Pastor 

Emmanuel Baptist Church 
Natchitoches, La. 

We are witnessing the demise of quality Big 
Name Entertainment at Northwestern. This trend 
has been progressing through recent semesters 
until at this point, a crisis exists in spring 
entertainment this year. 

As noted in the Minutes of SGA on this page, 
unless $4,000 was obtained by last Wednesday, one' 
and possibly two, of the concerts scheduled for this 
semester would have to be canceled. At deadline 
time Wednesday, not enough funds had been 
acquired, and BNE Committee members were not 
optimistic of success. 

Although this crisis came about suddenly, there 
have been indications for quite some time that such 
a situation could be expected before long. 
Beginning possibly last spring, entertainment 
booklet sales had begun to decline, and 
consequently, fewer persons were attending the 
SGA-sponsored concerts. 

It is simple to blame the committee and its 
chairman who are responsible for the booking and 
contracting of the performers, but the causes for 
the decline and ultimate crisis in the entertainment 
program lies much deeper. Apparently, NSC 
students are simply not getting the groups and 
artists they want to see. 

With such truly big names as Peter, Paul, and 
Mary; the Fifth Dimension; Blood, Sweat, and 
Tears; the First Edition; and others, appearing in 
the state and in the area, students are not going to 
be satisfied with less. 

We can remember not very long ago when 
Northwestern's entertainment series was 
unrivaled throughout Louisiana. What happened 
to the great performers, the sell-out crowds, and the 
packed coliseums? 

The problem is too pressing and too great to be 
written off with rationalizations such as, money ij 
tight, or good groups cost too much, or enrollment 
is dropping. These are factors, certainly, but they 
are not the causes. 

The true problems are a lack of organization, too 
little student voice in selection of groups, and the 
encumberances of an antiquated system. 
The Committee 

The SGA Big Name Entertainment Committee 
for this year with one or two exceptions has proved 
itself inept in its prescribed functions, 
significant portion of the responsibility for this 
eneptness must necessarily lie with the vice 
president of the student body, who, as chairman ol 
the committee, has as his major duty, the 
coordinating of the entertainment program. 

With a closer examination of the situation 
several questions arise. Why did the chairman and 
this committee wait until late in the summer to 
start booking groups for the fall, and until 
December for the spring semester? Why were The 
Impact of Brass, and Herb Reed (of the Origigal 
Platters) booked for concerts when they are oob! 
only NOT Big Name entertainers, but are almost

Minutes of SGA 

One of the more outspoken members of the more 
outspoken Languages Department, Dr. Donald 
Hatley is a native of Sulphur Springs, Texas. He 
received his doctorate from East Texas State 
University, and has served on the NSC faculty for 
two years. 

In addition to being a member of the Faculty 
Senate, Hatley is also chairman of the College 
Assembly Committee.

Respectfully submitted, 

Susan Nickerson, Secretary 
Student Government 

Current Sauce: One of the 

predominant topics brought 
out in these interviews is 
student apathy. How do you 
feel the student body fares 
in this area? 

Hatley: After having 
served two years here, one 
thing that is noticiable is 
the apathy among both stu- 
dents and faculty. There are 
many issues in which the 
students should be inte- 
rested. Namely, the book- 
store situation, the library, 
and censorship of the news- 

Sauce: You mentioned 
first in your list, the book- 
store. What specific pro- 
blems have you experienced 
in this area? 

Hatley: First, as a faculty 
member, I do not feel 
"comfortable" in the book- 
store. I am not allowed to 
browse through either text 
or non-testbooks--without 
being closely supervised. 

Sauce: What possible 
reasons could there be for 
such a situation to exist? 

Hatley: I don't think the 
bookstore has a sense of 
itself as a potential major 
source of ideas in the aca- 
demic community. There 
should be a place on 
campus where a student can 
buy books for reading plea- 
sure and not assigned 
through classes. This is 
especially important with 
the absence of funds for the 
new books in the library. 

Sauce: Have you had any 
problems as a faculty mem- 
ber in ordering books from 
the bookstore? 

Hatley: Classes, courses, 
are often dominated by the 
bookstore. For example, if a 
new teacher, comes in to 
teach a course previously 

taught by another teacher, 
he usually has to follow the 
book list ordered by his 
predecessor, regardless of 
his interest in the books 
being sold by the bookstore 
for his course. 

Sauce: Regarding the 
problem you brought up 
about the lack of non-text- 
books in the bookstore, what 
could be done to alleviate 
this stiuation? 

Hatley: Part of it could be 
solved if the bookstore 
would contact various pu- 
blishing companies and 
allow them to set up book 
displays. In such a situa- 
tion, book companies would 
accept the unsold books in 
such a display if they were 
returned within six months. 

Sauce-.Students should 
know that only $34,000 is 
being spent for books this 
year. This means that cer- 
tain periodicals will have to 
be discontinued. 

This is especially painful 
to the sciences here. Where 
the results of new research 
are usually printed in perio- 
dical form, this source of 
information is being cut off. 

Sauce: Why are other 
programs being favored 
over the education systems 
of Louisiana? 

Hatley: There is a con- 
crete answer in Louisiana. 
Most of the other funds in 
this state are designated 
funds. The only two excep- 
tions are found in education 
and the charity hospital sys- 
tem. Becuase of the deficit 
in the state bodget during 
the last fiscal year of $30 
million, these programs had 
to suffer to help make up for 
the deficit during the 1969-70 
fiscal year. 

Sauce: Have you found 

anything encouraging in 
the student body in regard to 
the apathy you mentioned 

Hatley: Yes. I've been 
particularly encouraged 
with the Political Science 
Society. When I have 
attended their meetings, the 
society presented in- 
teresting speakers and the 
question-answer sessions 
were heartening. 

Sauce: You also men- 
tioned apathy in the faculty. 

Hatley: I would like to see 
more interest by the faculty 
in the American Asso- 
ciation of University Pro- 
fessors and the Faculty Se- 
nate. For no reason at all, 
the AAUP seems to be gene- 
rally distrusted by the gene- 
ral faculty. 

This is especially puz- 
zling since Louisiana does 
not have a strong tenure law 
to protect college teachers. 
Furthermore, as a member 
of the Faculty Senate, I find 
most faculty members gene- 
rally are uninterested in the 
proceedings of the Senate. 

Sauce: What has the 
Faculty Senate been doing 
to generate such interest? 

Hatley: Currently, the 
Faculty Senate is debating 
on whether or not to re- 
commend to the college 
administration the esta- 
blishment of a standing com- 
mittee made up of students, 
faculty members, and 
administration officials to 
oversee the operation of the 

Sauce: Your committee 
and the Student Govern- 
ment Association are bring- 
ing Peter Jennings to NSC 
for a Long-awaited 
assembly speaking 
engagement. What other 
plans does your committee 

Hatley: None at this time. 
The committee is more or 
less waiting to see if the stu- 
der.;, body will support a 
strong assembly program. 
If this strong interest is 
shot- !*>g in the Jennings 
i-iugram, I am sure we 
would have other programs 
with comparable speakers, 

either this year or next. 

Sauce: How can student! 
participate in choosing thi 
speakers who come | 

Harley: Of course there ii 
student representation ol 
the committee, and meffl 
bers of this committee an 
always open to suggestion! 
from students. 

Sauce: Recently ttt 
Languages DepartmeS 
seems to have had mofl 
than its share of problem 1 
with its faculty members. 
Would you like to commeri 
on this matter? 

Hatley: Yes, that doe 
seem to be the case. I wouli 
like to say, however, that * 
do have 25 conscientious te> 
chers bearing a heavy lo* 
of the teaching respot 
sibility at NSC. 

Academically, the depart 
ment is in better shape th* 
at any time since I've bed 
here. We have four peopJ 
with the earned doctoral 
and five others working " 
their doctoral dissertations 

Sauce: What are some 1 
the things which contribul 
to the hiring of teachers wl 
are not satisfied? 

Hatley: One problem 
that sometimes a depal 
ment is not given sufficiel 
time to screen candidates 
Last fall, for example, U 
Languages Department 
not notified until shortl 
before the beginning of tt 
semester that it could hit* 
language teacher. We d 
not have time to personal 
interview the candidates f 
the job. So, with the excel 
tion of his paper cf 
dentials, we had to hire f 
teacher sight unseen - so-* 
speak. This sort of hiri*j 
procedure inevitably le^ 
to mistakes. 

Sauce: To what extent & 
you as a faculty meml* 
have a academic freedom' 

Harley: First, let me s« 
in the two years I have W e 
here, I've had compl e 
freedoms to say what 
pleased in the classroo* 1 
and with the exception ' 
the out-dated booksto 1

Northwestern State Col-

in radiologic technology 
veill be conducted in 
cooperation with T. E. 
Schumpert Memorial 
Hospital in Shreveport. 

The four-year degree pro-

immediately following the 
approval of the Louisiana 
Coordinating Council for 
Higher Education. 

Dr. Rene Bienvenu, dean 
of the School of Science and

years of classwork on the 
Natchitoches campus fol- 
lowed by a two-year period 
of formal and applied 
instruction in the Radio- 
logic School at the 
Schumpert Hospital. 

Northwestern becomes 
the first educational 
institution in Louisiana to 
offer the degree program in 
radiologic technology.

surplus of funds which could have averted this 
spring's crisis? Any answers to these questions 
we could offer would only be speculative, and none 
can justify the situation. 

The Survey 

Last semester a feeble attempt was made to find 
out who the students wanted through a hastily- 
executed survey. It was definitely a case of two 
little, too late. According to one of the members of 
the entertainment committee, this measure was 
suggested to the chairman at one of the early 
meetings, yet he summarily threw the proposal out. 

Finally, in the waning days of the fall semester, 
the survey was held, yet the chairman failed to 
alert the Current Sauce. As would be expected, no 
more than 600 students voted on the groups. 

In yet another indication of disorganization, at 
least two groups were listed whose asking prices 
were in both cases MORE than the amount of funds 
the committee could depend upon. 

The top selections were Johnny Rivers, Blood, 
Sweat, and Tears, Hose Feliciano, and Stevie 
Wonder. Of the four, only the last was chosen -for 
the spring program. 

A Solution 

A possible solution to the problems plaguing our 
entertainment program— too late for this semester, 
however— would be to revise the system of 
financing the concerts. 

As it stands now, students pay $1 at registration 
which is used by the committee for paying the 
artists. The remainder is hopefully acquired 
through sales of ticket booklets. If a larger sum 
were included in the fall semester, equivalent to the 
total cost of ticket booklets and the $1 assessment, 
students could have more entertainment for less 

If students paid only $10 during fall registration, 
and none in the spring, they would be saving $2, 
and the committee would have a definite sum of 
$65,000 to $70,000-ample money to supply top 
groups every year. 

An added benefit would be found in the inclusion 
°f the fee in the total registration. Students would 
n ot have to dig into their pockets for an additional 
$5 each semester after paying their other fees: the 
"pinch" would not be felt as much. 

As for the problem of organization, the burden 
lies with the student body. The solution is to elect 
dedicated leaders who can be trusted to perform 
their duties fully and responsibly.

Some office jobs

In the old days if a man wanted to be an executive

swashbuckling executives still get 
their chance. 

That's maybe a million bucks

Their Motto Is Duty And Honor 

By Gary Estess 

Northwestern's day has ended, the 
halls are quiet and the Union empty 
of students. A sun in the pale blue 
sky strikes the school buildings with 
its shafts of gold. Yet one hears in 
the distance the thunder of marching 
feet and sharp commands piercing 
the tranquility of late afternoon. 

If you listen closer the din of each 
stroke as it makes its thud echo the 
words, "Duty, Honor, Country." 
Three small words which serve as 
the motto for Northwestern's 
nationally known drill team, the 
Black Knights. 

As the showcase unit of the Corps, 
the Black Knights are endowed with 
the proud tradition exemplifying the 
ideals those three words symbolize. 

With it's own special brand of 
tough military training and self- 
discipline, the Demon drill team is an 
elite organization whose members 
form the nucleus of leadership 
R . O . T . C . Program at Northwestern. 

The drill team offers the cadet an 
opportunity to gain confidence in his 
own ability to perform and produce 
efficiently. It also allows students a 
chance to see America by attending 
drill meets and performances across 
the nation. 

To earn money for these trips the 
drill team ushers at basketball and 
football games. A familiar sight on 
campus, the Knights strive for 
precision which accompany a 
winning team. 

Black Knights have been to the 
National Drill Team Championship 
held in Washington D. the 

Cherry Blossom Festival three times 
and took first place trophies at all 
three festivals. Two members of the 
faculty, Major Bill Cone, the present 
drill team advisor and Captain Hugh 
Durham were a part of 1960 
Championship team which first 
brought national acclaim to 

Since then the Black Knights have 
performed for generals and visiting 
dignitaries and compete in drill 
meets around the country. Last 
year the Black Knights once again 
received national recognition by 
capturing first place honors in the 
Southern Invitational Drill meet at 
Louisiana State University. In doing 
so they defeated the Texas A . and M . 
Fish Drill Team which, only the week 
before, had won the National 
Championship in Washington. This 
year the Knights will have to defend 
their title atL.S.U. 

The most recent achievement came 
during the 1969 Homecoming 
performance as their flying rifles so 
delighted former Governor James 
Noe of Monroe, that he donated $1,000 
to send the team to the Washington 

However, the Black Knights are 
more than just a drill team. It is a 
exclusive fraternity made possible 
by the dedication and hard work of 
the members. For the team members 
are not only responsible to 
themselves but also to their fellow 
Black Knights past, present, and 
future to maintain the same spirit, 
drive, and ideals that characterize 
the trust assumed by every man 
when he becomes a member of the 
Black Knights.

in our country. The effect of 
tight money, the lack of loan

rising costs of education 
and the rising number of 
students applying for

wants an education, but 
doesn't have the money to 
pay for it. 

There aren't very many

Work isn't necessairly a

many students search out 
summer employment on 
their own— to earn money, to 
gain valuable experience 
and just for the fun of it. The 
ones who get the jobs are the 
ones who apply early. 

Some 80,000 summer 
positions are available in 
the U.S. to young people, 
another 20,000 in Europe.

study, or to make the

Two Northwestern State 
College faculty members 
have received a grant from 
the U.S. Office of Education 
to field-test a new teaching 
method known as the 
Inquiry Role Approach. 

Recipients of the grant 
were Dr. Keith Requa, 
professor of science educa- 
tion, and Jimmy Stothart, 
assistant professor of 
science education. 

The grant was awarded by 
the U.S. Office of Educa- 
tion's Mid-Continent 
Regional Educational 
Laboratory in Kansas City. 
The original grant was for 
$6,000, and the laboratory 
has agreed to extend the 
funds if necessary. 

Requa and Stothart are 
being assisted in the study 
by 25 supervisors and tea- 
chers in seven parishes. 
Several hundred junior and 
senior high school students 
are taking part in the 
testing program. 

The Inquiry Role 
Approach is being tested in 
biology, life science and 
chemistry classes in the 

cooperating parishes. 

Parishes taking part in 
the project are Bossier, Jef- 
ferson, Natchitoches, 
Sabine, St. Martin, Webster 
and Vermillion. The 
parishes will cooperate in 
the program through the 
current school year. 

Requa, director of the 
grant program, said the 
purpose and objective of 
Inquiry Role Approach is to 
aid students in directing 
their own learning 
processes and in becoming 
less dependent upon the 
teacher. '"Self-motivation of

How To Enjoy And Survive The Mardi Gras 

By Molly Chancey 

Green, gold, and purple 
decor has recently appeared 
across the state to declare 
that February 10 approa- 
ches. Mardi Gras is upon us. 

For those of you who have 
never descended upon the 
Crescent City at Carnival 
time (native New Orleans- 
ites, ignore this), perhaps 
you'd be interested to soak 
up a few details on the what, 
where, why, when, and how 
of the celebration, not to 
Mention a few tips on sur- 
viving to return safely to 
NSC (provided you want to 
return to NSC.) 

Essentially a Catholic 
holiday of feasting and 
merriment before the onset 
°f Lent season, Mardi Gras 
involves the entire city of 
New Orleans---and you 
shouldn't miss any part of 
Start with simple tasks 
'ike eating and sleeping, 
& nd if you know what to do, 
!°ey too can become part of 
'he magic of Carnival. 

If you're operating on a 
(united budget (and who 
■sn't?), eating can still be a 
Pleasurable experience if 
v ou know where to go. Why 
aot try "The Steak Pit" or 
The Buck Forty-Nine" in 

the heart of the French Quar- 
ter? "Batistello's" is ano- 
ther charming restaurant, 
found next to the French 
Market, that features gco'd, 
. inexpensive dishes with 
lots of local color and the 
authentic flavor of the 
French Quarter. 

Everyone wants to be 
truly ritzy sometime, so 
take advantage of New 
Orleans for one night (and 
onJyone night— your wallet 
can stand no more) to dine 
in real style. Make the 
scene at the Top of the Mart 
or The Roosevelt Hotel, both 
in downtown N.O. Both 
sport regular enter- 
tainment. If you'd rather 
stay in the Quarter, "Bren- 
nan's" or "The Court of Two 
Sisters" are well worth don- 
ning a suit and tie. 

For foreign-food lovers, 
"The Imperial Palace" on 
the outskirts of the city 
offers authentic atmosphere 
and scrumptuous Chinese 


Don't forget, too, lots of 
corn on the cob, hot dogs, 
and hurricanes available in 
street carts everywhere! 
Delicious, and terribly 

Now that you're thorough- 
ly stuffed, consider possible 
destinations for night-time 

Of course you're all fami- 
liar with Pat O'Brien's, Your 
Father's Mustache, Pete 
Fountain's Club, and the Old 
Absinthe House. And 
they're fine. ..for a start. 
This year do a little 
extemporaneous exploring 
off the tourist beat to dis- 
cover such little-advertised 
spots as "The Seven Seas," 
"LaCassa," of "Jean Lafitte's 
Blacksmith Shop", all found 
a bit deeper in the Quarter 
than usual. But don't be 
timid. Go native. 

Surprisingly, you'll find 
that day is just as nice as the 
night in New Orleans. Start 

it off right with coffee and 
beignets at Morning Call. 
Then take a free-lance tour 
of art shops and antique 
stores. (If you're sending 
pralines back home as a 
souvenir, "Laura's Praline 
Shop" mails delicious 
goodies right from the 
store.) You might even have 
time between parades to 
catch a glimpse of Lake 
Ponchartrain or Audubon 
Park. Sort of square, but fun 

Don't neglect to join the 
throng of parade-watchers 
to fight for your share of 
beads and trinkets. Get a 
doubloon and you're marked 
for greatness! 

Get involved in the city, 
the people, the celebration-- 
and Mardi Gras, 1970, will 
be a time you won't soon 
forget. Go hippie, go 
straight, go up, go native, go 
mad, or go wild— but just go!

Variety Of Songs Listed 

By Bessie Brock 

Number one on the charts 
this week is a song called 
"Venus" sung by a group 
who call themselves the 
Shocking Blue. A popular 
song, "Venus" was number 
one also last week where it 
moved up from the number 
two position. 

"Raindrops Keep Falling 
on my Head" has fallen to 
the number four spot on the 
charts after holding the 
number one spot for several 
weeks in a row. B.J.Thomas 
sings the song which comes 
from the movie. Butch 
Cassidy and the Sundance 

Tom Jones, popular with 
his T.V. show, has the 
number five spot with a 
song called "Without Love." 
The song is sung in Jones' 
usual ear-catching manner 
which has yielded spec- 
tacular results. 

"I'll never Fall in Love 
Again" has been brought 
back to the charts once 
again by Dionne Warwick. 
Dionne Warwick recently 
had a hit called "Promises 
Promises" from the motion 
picture she starred in by the 
same name. 

Elvis, with a new image 
and a new style, has a hit 
with "Don't Cry Daddy." 
Since his make-over, Elvis 
has not only changed in his 

singing style, but he had 
also changed in his movie 
rolls Hit songs since the 
change include "If I Can 
Dream" and "In the Ghetto." 

A song to watch is 
"Arizona" by Mark Lindsay. 

The lead singer for Paul 
Revere and the Raiders 
seems to be breaking away 
from the group to go it on 
his own. This song should 
be a great hit for Mark Lind- 

Another song to watch is 
"Walk a Mile in My Shoes" 
sung by Joe South. With a 
song with a deep meaning, 
Joe South has returned with 
another hit to add to his 
growing list. His other hits 
include, "Birds of a 
Feather," "The Games 
People Play," and recently 
"Don't it Make You Want to 
go Home." 

A look at past hits on the 
survey reveals that ten 
years ago a ballad about the 
love of Running Bear and 
Little White Dove, Two 
Indians, captured the hearts 
of listeners. The song, 
called "Running Bear" was 
very popular at that time. 

Five years ago Dick and 
DeeDe did a song called 
"Thou Shalt Not Steal" and 
only one year ago "Son of a 
Preacher Man" was being

Survey To Be Published 

Educators at 
Northwestern State College 
began last week editing the 
vast collection of material 

which was compiled during 

the college's Survey of the 
Educational Needs of 

Dr. C.R. Kinard, survey 
director, said a publication 
containing the findings of 
the research team should be 
completed by March 1. 
Twenty-four Northwestern 
faculty and staff members 
have been working on the 
survey since July. 

Northwestern's School of 
Education received a $69,060 
grant from the State 
Department of Education to 
conduct the survey. 

Following the publication 
of the research team's 
findings, eight regional 
seminars will be conducted 
across the state to discuss 
information contained in 
the publication. Members of 
the survey unit will conduct 
the seminars. 

State Superintendent of 
Education William J. Dodd, 
who has worked closely 
with members of the survey 
team, said Northwestern 
officials gathered data from 
all 64 parish school systems 
and two city school systems 
during the study. 

Kinard said that following 
the regional seminars, the 
publication will be updated, 
condensed and reprinted in 
booklet form. The booklets 
will be distributed to 
libraries and educational 
institutions across 

The survey includes a 
study of kindergarten 

through the 12th grade. 
Included in the published 
survey will be research data 
en— educational facilities, 

finance, transportation, 
student population, 
curriculum and teachers 
and staff.

survey will be research_data 
on educational facilities, 
.fina-nce, transportation,

and staff. 

In the area of curriculum, 
the survey team has broken 
its study into sections 
including science, 
mathematics, social studies, 
secondary language arts, 
elementary language arts, 
health and physical 
education, music and art 
and vocational education. 

Kinard said a major part 
of the publication will deal 
with the needs of libraries 
and media center facilities 
in Louisiana's schools. 

Serving as assistant 
director of the survey is 
Jack Ensminger, formerly 
with the North Louisiana 
Supplementary Education 

Research specialists 
working with the program 
are Dr. Waddell Burge, 
facilities; Dr. Ronald 
Dennis, finance; Dr. Allen

and Dr. Thomas Hennigan,

The feature stories on 
various campus personali- 
ties that appear in the 
Current Sauce weekly are 
there through the effort of 
our features editor, Niva 
Jeanne Chavez. Niva writes 
features on outstanding 
Northwestern students and 
faculty members. 

As her father is in the Air 
Force, Niva has had some 
chance to travel and has 
seen such places as New 
York and Colorado. Niva 
was born in Albuquerque, 
New Mexico, and graduated 
from Highland High School 
in that city. 

A Feshman this year, 
Niva likes swimming, base- 
ball, and working on a 
collection of stuffed animals 
which she adores. She also 
likes to read. 

Niva explains that she 
came to Northwestern 
because she "Wanted to see 
what being on my own was 
like.." She added, "If I had 
stayed in New Mexico, I 
would have had to live at 
home or with relatives." 

Niva's parents, Sergeant 
and Mrs. Manuel N. Chavez, 
now reside in Clovis, New 
Mexico. Niva is the only 
girl in the family and has an 
older and a younger brother. 
Her older brother Manuel, 
21, is also a journalism 
major here at NSC and is, 
like Niva, a member of the 
Current Sauce staff. Bobbie, 
the younger brother, is 12 
and attending Yucca Junior 
High School.

Members Named 
To Committee 

Four Northwestern State 
College faculty members

and committee member- 
ships in the Louisiana

the organization during the 
year will be Dr. George A. 
Kemp, professor of educa- 
tional psychology and 

Three members of the 
Department of Psychology 
at Northwestern were 
named to various 
committees of the state asso- 

Dr. C. B. Moody, head of 
the Psychology Depart-

James Bennett, assistant 
professor of psychology, is 
on the Insurance 
Committee, and assistant 
professor Dr. Donald O. 
Gates is a member of the 
Scientific Affairs 

newspaper when she 
graduates. She said that she 
does not know much about 
radio or television, but 
might consider those fields 

Whatever the case career- 
wise, though, Niva comes 
across as an interesting and 
interested NSC student, one 
whom the press is proud to

Courage Is Displayed In Many Ways 

By Niva Chavez 

There are many different 
types of courage displayed 
by people throughout the 
world each day. North- 
western is fortunate to have 
a student whose outgoing 
personality radiates a 
beautifully unconscious 
courage. The student's 
name is Eugenia Fisher, and 
she can be seen going to 
class each day with her 
seeing-eye dog, Oma, 
walking beside her. 

Eugenia is a freshman 
this year and her major is 
speech therapy. Her family 
resides in Pineville and she 
has two younger brothers 
and a younger sister. She 
graduated from Pineville 
High School. When asked 
why she picked NSC to 
attend, she just laughed and 
said, "I don't know, I guess 
I have just always wanted 

Eugenia claims she didn't 
have too much trouble learn- 
ing the arrangement of the 

panist, Mrs. Smith will 
appear as soloist in an ori- 
ginal composition by 
Krause entitled "Petite 
Variations for Piano," 
which he composed in 1965. 

There is no charge for 
admission, and the public is 
invited to attend. 

Another of her favor™ 
hobbies is knitting. ^ 
most recent project, still , 
progress, is a knit duster. 

Classwork offers Eugejjj 
no problems. She types q L 
work which has to be tum 8 i 
in, and she used record J* 
text books. 

Oma, her seeing-eye d 
is, perhaps, Eugeni a l 
favorite subject to ta| 
about. A dog couldn't have l ^ 
prouder owner. Eugenj jckstei 
attended school for 0|) jstandi 
month in order to learn hen sever 
to train and use a seeing-e^pardy 
dog. She received Oma 
August of this year.

asked if the campus crow ( jr I1 ts oi

replied, "People don't bothj ir by

Eugenia Fisher 

college, but laughingly 
added, "Northwestern isn't 
exactly like everyplace else. 

It has the most illogical 
placement of buildings!" 
What gave her the most diffi- 
culty were the winding 
roads and the curbed curbs. 

Eugenia proved to have a 
variety of interests. 
Swimming is her favorite 
sport and she likes to play 
the piano, sing, and read. 

Oma. She likes them!' 

Oma fits right into m m pose

She sleeps on the fl^ *ljjwes

NSC track coach and the 
school's registrar. 

The first day is given to 
high school tracksters, 
many of whom will be 
making their indoor debut. 
Most prep thinclads who 
come to the Graduate "N" 
Club Indoor Meet have 
never before participated in 
an indoor track meet. And 
the list of entrants has 
swelled each year in the 
high school category. 

"We expect to have 
probably 20 to 25 colleges 
represented by the time all 
the entries are in," added 
Coach John Thompson. As 
Northwestern's track 
mentor, Thompson is 
lending invaluable service 
to the sponsoring group by 
handling all the entries. 

Among the outstanding 
schools which already have 
entrants listed are 
University of Houston, 
Lamar Tech, University of 
Mississippi, Mississippi 
State, Arkansas A&M, 
Stephen F. Austin, and the 
always-tough Gulf States 
Conference schools. 

Prep Marks Risked 
The 60-yard dash will 
have several prep 

speedsters entered who 
have run the 100-yard dash 
in less than 10 seconds. 
Topping the list is Vic 
Rozas from Sulphur, with a 
time of 9.5 to his credit in the 

Harold Porter, a young 
man from East Jefferson 
High School in New 
Orleans, shapes up as one of 
the more exciting 
performers who will be in 
attendance. Rozas has run a 
9.7 hundred, a 14.5 clocking 
in the 120-yard high 
hurdles, and he is the 
defending champion 
Class AAA in the 100 
220-yard dashes. 

Danny Richardson, 
Northwood High 
Shreveport, could 
Porter some competition in 
the hurdles event (60 yards 
on the indoor track). 
Richardson has been 
clocked at 14.9 over the 120- 
yard course. 

The meet record of 52.4 
seconds in the 440-yard dash 
is in real jeopardy. Emmett 
Barham from Bastrop has 
chaled up a 49.4 clocking for 
the quarter-mile, and he is 
the defending "N" Club Meet 

Another thinclad who 
could have a shot at a new 
record is Richard Beckham 
from Capt. Shreve High 
School. Beckham has turned 
in a 4:29 mile run. But his 
effort would have to be 
awfully good to better the 
existing mark of 4:19.3, set 
by Byrd High School's 
Owen Self in 1967. 

Richard Lewis from 
Natchitoches set a new meet 
record last year in the pole 
vault, a level of 14'3". But 
Lewis, who now does his 
thing for the Northwestern 
Demon thinclads, may see 
his mark busted by Tommy 
McDougald from Crossett, 
Ark. McDougald has hurled 
him-self over the bar at 14'6" 

in previous attempts. 

Several other state high 
school champions will be in 
attendance at the Sixth 
Annual Graduate "N" Club 
Indoor Track Meet. Cham- 
pions from Texas, Arkan- 
sas, and Mississippi will 
display their talents along 
with the champs from

represent over 20 institu- 
tions of higher learning 
from a four-state area. 

The list of entries is 
impressive with many 
conference champions top- 
ping their respective 
events. And some very 
noticeable times, heights, 
and distances are registered 
on the charts. 

Sylvester McKinney of 
Northeast will be in the 
starting blocks in the 60- 
yard dash in the upper brac- 
ket. McKinney was the Gulf 
States Conference champ in 
the 100 and 220-yard dashes 
last spring. 

Joe Profit, also of North- 
east but more known for his 
football prowess than his 
speed, has an equal time as 
that of McKinney in the 60- 
yard sprint. Both men have 
been clocked at 6. 1 seconds. 
Two other entries with iden- 
tical times are Andy Thiel of 
Southeastern and Andy 

Hopkins of Stephen F. 
Austin. Last year's winner, 
Don King of La. Tech, will 
also return to defend his 
winning time f 6.2. 

The meet record for the 
440-yaard dash is 5.12 
seconds but this mark s to 
be on its way out, as several 
entries are already listed 
with best times well below 
50 seconds.

Nico Van Thyne, sports 
writer for the Shreveport 
Times, reflected on Blood- 
worth's performance 
against the league leaders 
and stated, "If he (Blood- 
worth) isn't voted one of the 
best five players in the GSC, 
then something wrong." 
Watts Quartei jacks 

Doug Watts, the 5-10 
senior guard who sparks the 
Demon offense with steady 
floor play, is second in the 
scoring parade with a 15.6 
average. Watts has also 
passed out 59 assists in the 
16 games he has played and 
has committed only 21 fouls 
while usually drawing the 
opponents best guard to de- 

A slumping Carlton Wald- 
ing is averaging 14.9 points 
per contest but his field goal 
accuracy, once at .550 per 
cent has drooped to .476. But 
at the foul line Walding 
continues to sparkle, can - 
ning 36 of 41 for a GSC-Iead- 
ing .878 percentage. 

Johnny Janese, crashing 
the boards from his guard 
slot for a 4.4 average, is also 
hitting the nets for double 
figures with his 13.3 norm. 
The 6-1 former LaG range 

star is second behind Watts 
in assists with 43. Jack, 
"The Ripper" as he is known 
to his teammates, has 226 
total points and a .420 mark 
from the field. 

Ex-Marine and Viet Nam 
veteran Marvin Willett, who 
became eligible in the 
spring semester, is avera- 
ging 9.8 points and 10.4 
rebounds per outing while 
coming off the bench in five 

Walding's starting mate at 
forward, Jerry Masters, got 
off to a poor start but has 
been coming around in his 
last five games and is hit- 
ting around .500 from the 
field in those contests. Mr. 
NSC is popping home 7.6 
points a game and grabbing 
five and a half rebounds. 
Masters, considered one of 
the best defensive forwards 
in the league, like Watts, 
always draws the best oppo- 
sing forward to guard. 

Besides Willett, depth is 
provided by "Kangaroo" 
Thurmond Baptiste who has 
4.9 and 5.8 scoring and 
rebounding standards, and 
two reserve guards who 
have given Coach Tynes 
Hildebrand's club scoring 
power in the last four 
games, Andy Marusak and 
Randy Vauleman. Both are 
scoring 4.5 points a game.

Miller Named 
AAU Lifter 

Steve Miller, a senior 
from Shreveport, was 
named the Outstanding 
Weightlifter in 1969 at the 
Southern AAU Banquet 
held in New Orleans last 

Current state champion of 
Louisiana, Arkansas, and 
Texas, the NSC athlete was 
selected for the honor on the 
basis of- achievements 
during the year. 

Robert Samuels, Southern 
Chairman of AAU, stated 
that he feels that Miller is, at 
this stage, already ahead of 
people like Lou Ricky and 
John Gourgott, who were 
National weightlifting arfd 
Olympic weightlifting 

Miller said of Samuels, 
"He gave me a lot of 
encouragement to keep 
going. He feels I have a lot 
of potential, but that I 
should progress slowly and 
reach my peak ability at the 
right time." Miller plans to 
attend the Junior National 
AAU Weightlifting meet in 
New York in May.

the time to catch big bass. 
Sure it is a little more work 
to sit on the lake when the 
thermometer is going below

heavily loaded stringer. 

We fishermen at NSC are 
in a very appealing location 
as far as fishing spots go. 
Depending on which way 
you want to go, Sibley Lake 
and Cane River are not more 
than a mile away from the

Mardi Gras Is Old Celebration franklyspeawng lyPhHRw* 

Several weeks ago, 
everyone celebrated Christ- 
mas, but next week New 
Orleans and her surroun- 
ding area will celebrate 
Mardi Gras, "Fat Tuesday", 
New Orlean's own holiday 
with an enormous carnival. 

At one time, Mardi Gras 
held a religious meaning, 
but today being the last day 
before Lent is a secondary 
meaning for Mardi Gras. 
On Tuesday, people will for- 
get their debts, hide their 
everyday faces behind 
masks, and will buy drinks 
for perfect strangers 
though no one is a stranger 
at Mardi Gras, for the plea- 
sure principle makes every- 
one blood brothers for a day. 

When did the festivities 
begin? One tale relates that 
when the city was founded 
by Bienville in 1718 an 
impromptu Mardi Gras cele- 
bration was held by his men. 

It is a fact, however, that 
several years prior to the 
founding of the city, a party 
of Franch colonizers headed 
by Bienvilles's brother, Iber- 
ville, camped on the 
Mississippi River, twelve 
miles from its mouth. Not- 
ing that the date was March 
3, 1699-Mardi Gras of that 
year. Iberville recorded that 
the location was officially 
named Point du Mardi Gras. 

If some observance of the 
holiday took place, it was 
the first in Louisiana. 
Wanted Excitement 

In 1827, a group of young 
French boys from rich 
plantation families yearned 

Psychology Club 
Forms Library 

A library has been establi- 
shed in the Northwestern 
Department of Psychology 
by the NSC Psychology 
Club and Psi Chi, national 
honorary society in psycho- 

Both organizations voted 
this week to donate from 
their treasuries some $100 a 
year to be used for the pur- 
chase of books on psycho- 
logy. The library has been 
set up in the Psychology 
Department in Caldwell 

Graduating seniors in 
psychology will also be 
honored through the 
establishment of the library. 
Each year the names of the 
graduating seniors will be 
inscribed in gold on the 
library books which are pur- 

Dr. Donald Gates, associa- 
te professor of psychology, 
will serve as chairman of 
the committee which will 
select and purchase the 
books this year to begin the 
collection. Others on the 
committee will be Vaughn 
Stegg of Jennings, Psi Chi 
president, and Raymond 
Rush of DeRidder, psycho- 
logy club president.

for the excitement they had 
in Paris on Mardi Gras. 
They got together to give a 
big Mardi Gras ball that 
night. Just before the ball 
they put on costumes and 
masks and went shooping 
and yelling and dancing and 
singing down the sti eets of 
New Orleans. 

They rang cowbells and 
beat on dishpans and tooted 
tin horns. Then they ducked 
down a side street and went 
to their ball. They had star- 
ted something— the idea was 
here to stay. 

Mardi Gras nearly died in 
the 1850's. Chaos h
